Kentucky high school juniors and seniors have until May 15 to apply for a scholarship to help pay for dual credit classes taken at a Kentucky college or university.

The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority’s (KHEAA) Mary Jo Young Scholarship provides assistance with tuition and textbook expenses for up to two classes each semester. Scholarships can only be used in the fall and spring semesters.

To be considered, students must be in grades 11 or 12 during the 2016-17 school year and must have at least an 18 ACT composite or earn at least a 2.5 GPA during the 2015-16 school year. Priority is given to students eligible for free and reduced-priced meals.

Students must apply through their KHEAA account. Click here for more information.
