The Following information is provided for your benefit as you prepare to continue your education at the post-secondary level.

1. The money will be paid directly to the college or university that you tell us you are going to attend.
2. The college or university will set up an account in your name at the Financial Aid Office.

3. $250.00 will be sent to the Financial Aid Office for the fall semester. Another $250.00 will be sent for the spring semester.

4. The Financial Aid Office will authorize disbursement to help pay tuition, books, and fees. You must have also applied for federal (Pell Grant) and state (Monetary Award Program) financial aid. The Financial Aid Officer of the school you are attending will utilize these funds (Pell Grant/Monetary Award Program) first.
Any portion of the $250.00 not used to cover tuition, books, and fee expenses will be paid to you at the end of each semester.

  1. You are required to send to the K. A. R E. Foundation a copy of your grade report each semester. Failure to do so will prevent the foundation from continuing your financial aid. You can mail a copy of your grade report to the address provided.

  2. GOOD LUCK! You have our sincere best wishes as you begin your college experience.
