FRANKFORT, KY (August 7, 2014) - Kentucky high school students who qualify for free or reduced lunches can earn additional Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) awards by scoring well on Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) exams.
A student has to qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program only one year during high school to be eligible for these bonus awards.
Each AP exam score of 3, 4 or 5 achieved by an eligible student will earn the student a KEES bonus of $200, $250 or $300 respectively. The same amounts are available for each IB exam score of 5, 6 or 7 earned by an eligible student.
There is no limit to the number of AP or IB bonus awards a student can earn.
In addition, AP and IB classes carry extra weight when KHEAA figures grade point averages for yearly KEES base awards. An A in an AP or IB class is worth 5 points, not 4, for KEES purposes.
KHEAA is the state agency that administers KEES, need-based grants and other programs to help students pay their higher education expenses.
To learn how to plan and prepare for higher education, go to www.gotocollege.ky.gov. For more information about Kentucky scholarships and grants, visit www.kheaa.com; write KHEAA, P.O. Box 798, Frankfort, KY 40602; or call 800-928-8926, ext. 6-7372.
