If you plan on attending a Kentucky college, make sure to stop by the library and copy the pages you need out of the Affording Higher Education guide.  This offers a comprehensive list of all the colleges in Kentucky and the scholarships they offer.  You cannot take it out of the library, but we do have a paid copier so that you can copy the pages.  You can also scan them on the scanner and save the document to your cloud files.
