Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority
October Financial Aid Tip of the Month
Juniors at Kentucky high schools could win a $500 scholarship to use at the Kentucky college of their choice—and a photo shoot for their school. They just need to tell why their school is the best in the state in 200 words or less.
The Promote Your School Scholarship contest is sponsored by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) and The Student Loan Peoplesm. Photos from the winning school will be used in KHEAA and The Student Loan People books and other publications.
Students from high schools that have already been featured—Danville, duPont Manual, George Rogers Clark and Murray—aren’t eligible this year. But students from other high schools around the state may enter for a chance to have their school featured in the 2006 KHEAA publications.
To enter, send your essay to KHEAA, Publications Section, P.O. Box 798, Frankfort, KY 40602-0798. You may also e-mail it to email@example.com or fax it to (502) 696-7230. The winner will be chosen by a committee of employees from KHEAA and The Student Loan People. To ensure objectivity, the names of both the students and their schools will be blacked out before the committee sees the entries. The deadline for submissions is November 1.
KHEAA and The Student Loan People provide millions of dollars each year to help Kentucky students pay for college. KHEAA administers the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES), which is funded by the Kentucky Lottery, and other state grants and scholarships. The Student Loan People provide the lowest cost student loans in the state.
