The Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) is based on high school academic achievement. The KEES program provides scholarships to students who earn at least a 2.5 GPA each year they attend a certified Kentucky High School. The better they do in high school, the more they earn toward college. They may also earn awards for ACT/SAT scores and Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) test scores.

Home School and GED graduates may earn awards based on their ACT scores.
