Thank you for your interest in the K.I.D.S. program! You are taking an important step in securing your children's dreams of an education beyond high school. We are now accepting 2014 applications for the Kansas Investments Developing Scholars Matching Grant Program (K.I.D.S.). To receive the matching grant you must submit a K.I.D.S. Match Grant Program Application before December 31, 2014 and contribute to a Learning Quest account before December 31, 2014.
Click here to download a K.I.D.S. 2014 application. If you don’t already have a Learning Quest account, you also need to open an account online at www.learningquest.com or download an account application. Please remember that we process applications on a first come-first served basis, so it's best to get yours in as soon as possible after you have completed your 2013 income tax return. Remember that if you participated in K.I.D.S. in 2013 and you want to continue, you must reapply this year.
The governor’s budget recommendation this year included funding for the program, but funding is never certain until the end of the legislative process. We will continue to process applications, and once you have been approved we will notify you if funding changes. You may continue to make contributions to your Learning Quest account, but there is no guarantee that your contributions will be matched until the legislature’s budget process is completed. Please visit this website for updates on funding for 2014. The legislature typically adjourns in late May.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office at 1-866-504-5898.
