LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Forty states, including Indiana, are getting more than $28 million in grants from the Education Department.
It's all to reduce the cost of Advanced Placement exams for low-income students. Indiana will receive $475,000.
The reduced cost is meant to encourage low-income and first-generation students to take the exams.
Students who pass the test could earn college credits--reducing the time and cost for a college degree. Without grants, some tests cost nearly $100. Now, some students could pay as little as $18.
