Topic: High School Seniors
High school seniors across Kentucky are now receiving Financial Aid Award letters from the colleges they have applied to. As parents and seniors look for the best Financial Aid package, remember to look for not only “how much” Financial Aid is being offered, but “what kind”. $10,000 in scholarships at an expensive school is a better offer than $10,000 in student loan debt from a less expensive school. Please examine award letters carefully. This “Financial Aid Tip of the Month” is from the KY Higher Education Assistance Authority.
