Budgeting for the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship
Letteer, Melvin E.
New Directions for Institutional Research, n140 p79-92 Win 2008
The Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) is a broad-based initiative that provides the opportunity for traditional and nontraditional secondary school students and General Educational Development (GED) recipients to earn scholarships that may be used at Kentucky colleges, universities, and selected technical and vocational education schools in the state. KEES scholarships are used in addition to any need-based student financial aid for which students may otherwise be eligible and does not affect eligibility or the amount of grant aid awarded by those programs. More than one in four KEES recipients in academic years 2004-2005 through 2006-2007 received a College Access Program (CAP) or a Kentucky Tuition Grant (KTG) grant, or both, in addition to their KEES award. In this article, the author provides an overview of the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship and describes the methodologies and data sources used to derive the biennial state budget projections of student use and costs of the program to the commonwealth.
