Research scholarships! We can help! Scholarships are available for just about anything, and they are awarded by a variety of organizations. Counselors at KentuckianaWorks College Access Center (KCAC) can help you search for every scholarship that seems to fit you.

KCAC counselors provide one-on-one assistance to fill out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Most schools require the FAFSA, which needs to be completed by students of all ages, as well as by parents of dependent students, as soon as possible after January 1 each year.

File your income tax returns as soon as possible in January (dependent students should urge their parents to file tax returns early) because you will need that information to complete the FAFSA. Note - you can file your FAFSA based on estimated tax information and update the FAFSA after you file your tax return.
