The Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) provides Kentucky high school students with money for tuition and education-related expenses. Just earn a 2.5 GPA or better in each year of high school to get it. Better grades means more scholarship money for college. You can also get a bonus award for the highest ACT composite score over 15 you make. Qualify for at least one base (GPA) award to receive the bonus. In addition, students who are eligible for free or reduced-price lunches during any year of high school can earn additional KEES bonus money by making qualifying scores on AP, IB or CAI exams. Check out the chart to see how much KEES money you have earned.
