Kentucky Dual Credit Scholarship

There are two scholarships for which dual credit students may qualify.  The Kentucky Dual Credit Scholarship will cover tuition for two courses in any subject for juniors and seniors over their high school career.  So, if a junior takes two scholarshipped courses, then they have no scholarships left for their senior year.  Students may, however, take more than two dual credit courses at the 1/3 tuition rate, if they are willing to pay for them themselves.  The Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship will cover tuition for up to two technical courses per year for freshmen through senior years. 

To be eligible for the Kentucky Dual Credit Scholarship, as student must:

  1. Be a Kentucky resident;
  2. Be enrolled in a Kentucky high school as a junior or senior;
  3. Have completed a 30 minute college success counseling session (provided by the high school);
  4. And be enrolled, or accepted for enrollment, in an approved dual credit course.

To qualify for the Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship a high school student must:

  1. Be a Kentucky resident;
  2. Be enrolled in a Kentucky high school;
  3. Not be eligible for, or have exhausted eligibility for, the Dual Credit Scholarship program;
  4. Be enrolled, or accepted for enrollment in, an approved dual credit course at an eligible institution.  Approved dual credit courses for the Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship are limited to Career and Technical Education coursework that is in a career pathway approved by the Kentucky Department of Education as leading to an industry‚Äźrecognized credential.

The student will begin the scholarship application process with their high school.  The student will then be contacted by KHEAA directly to complete the application process on the KHEAA website.  Students will be notified by KHEAA if they are awarded the scholarship.

Fall Semester: October 1
