CAP Grants help Kentucky's financially needy undergraduate students attend eligible public and private colleges and universities, proprietary schools, and technical colleges. Applicants must be a Kentucky resident, demonstrate financial need, and attend an eligible college at least part-time and in a program at least two years in length. Kentucky students applying for the FAFSA will be entered into consideration for this scholarship.
