Kentuckians attending the State Fair in Louisville August 16–26 may pick up free student financial aid information at the College Info Road Show booth in the South Wing of the Kentucky Exposition Center.
The College Info Road Show, a mobile classroom sponsored by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA), travels to schools across the state and provides Internet access for students to research colleges and search for scholarships.
At the fair, students and parents will be able to board the Road Show and enter a Facebook contest for a free iPad, register to follow KHEAA on Twitter, review their Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) awards at www.kheaa.com and register for a free College Cost and Planning Report.
Free college planning and financial aid materials will also be available at the KHEAA booth. KHEAA outreach staff will be on hand to answer questions from students, parents, school counselors and other college access providers.
KHEAA is the state agency that administers KEES, need-based grants and other programs to help students pay their higher education expenses.
