KCTCS awards Pell Grants based on federally established scheduled award amounts.

KCTCS makes a reasonable portion of campus-based aid available to less-than-full-time and independent students.

KCTCS identifies eligible students who qualify and do not qualify for a Federal Pell Grant and which parent or guardian died as a result of military service in Iraq or Afghanistan after September 11, 2001, for the purpose of reducing the expected family contributions (EFC) to zero.
