Maryland to offer free community college
ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Governor Larry Hogan plans to sign a bill this week that will give Maryland students the chance to get a free community college education, according to his spokesperson.
The legislation would allow the state to spend up to $15 million a year on scholarships worth up to $5,000 for low and middle-income students starting their educations.
In addition, $2 million will be allotted for grants for older students who need financial aid to finish their educations.
“The governor remains committed to helping more students achieve their educational goals and looks forward to signing this bill into law,” spokeswoman Amelia Chasse said.
