Kentucky Teacher Scholarship Program
The KHEAA Teacher Scholarship Program provides financial aid to highly qualified Kentucky students pursuing initial teacher certification at participating Kentucky institutions. All applicants must be Kentucky residents enrolled full-time (unless enrolled for the final term of a teacher certification program and less than full-time enrollment is required to complete the program). Applicants must demonstrate financial need to qualify for a KHEAA Teacher Scholarship.
College freshmen or sophomores may receive up to $625 each semester. Juniors, seniors and graduate students may receive up to $2,500 each semester. Awards for summer sessions are also available. The total amount a student may receive as an undergraduate is $12,500; a graduate student may receive up to $7,500. Recipients must teach one semester in Kentucky for each semester or summer session promissory note they sign. Recipients who teach in a critical shortage area will have promissory notes for two semesters or summer terms cancelled for each semester they teach.
