Scholarship Money For Felons

The Kentucky House Education Committee advanced a bipartisan bill Tuesday that would allow felons to use scholarship money to pursue higher education.Rep. Killian Timoney (R), who introduced House Bill 25, called the proposal a “compassion” bill. He said its goal is to eliminate barriers that prevent felons from being able to receive scholarships under the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) program.Timoney said it would remove the term “felon” from the law, which currently prevents them from being able to use KEES money.
