Seniors Final Schedule
The K.I.D.S. Matching Grant Program helps Kansas families with incomes less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level save for their children’s post-secondary education. Most students who qualify for free or reduced school lunches will also qualify for this incentive. This year the state of Kansas will match up to $600 in contributions made to each student’s Learning Quest account as part of the program. The matching grant, like all contributions to a 529 account, can be used for qualified expenses like tuition, books, and room and board for students who are enrolled at least half-time at any accredited university, community college or technical college. Each year up to 1,200 participants are funded, with applications being processed on a first come, first served basis. More information about the program can be found at www.KansasStateTreasurer.com/KIDS.
