State likely to increase grants for college students
Legislators agreed this month on a higher education bill that would put $36 million of new funding into the State Grant program, which helps one out of four Minnesota college students. At publication the bill has not been signed by Gov. Mark Dayton, but that appears likely, given the administration’s role in the negotiations. Next fall’s awards to students at Minnesota’s Private Colleges would increase on average by $180.
