Featured Image

TOPEKA  Governor Laura Kelly announced today that the Kansas Education Enrichment Program (KEEP) has awarded all available funds, and the program no longer accepts applications. The program will remain open for claims submissions, as beneficiaries have to use the funds one year after their award date. 

Nearly 50,000 Kansas students have been awarded funds across all 105 Kansas counties. 

“KEEP has been instrumental in providing access to materials and programs that strengthen academic success for Kansas children,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “By investing in our students now, we are preparing for our economic future and delivering on our mission to be the best state to live, work, and raise a family.”  

Launched in February 2023, KEEP provides qualifying parents and guardians with a $1,000 award per student to pay for educational goods and services such as tutoring, school supplies, camp, and music lessons. Awards were not eligible for private school tuition.  

The Kansas Office of Recovery partners with Merit International, Inc. to implement KEEP. Program administrators understand the importance of equitable distribution of available resources and remain committed to supporting the educational enrichment of Kansas students.
