Pell Grants For High School Students (Taking College Classes)

A First: Pell Grants For High School Students Who Take College Classes

Anya Kamenetz | May 17, 2016

The U.S. Education Department said this week it will make Pell Grants available to 10,000 high school students who are enrolled in courses at 44 colleges.
It's an ambitious experiment aimed at closing the attainment gap between rich and poor students in higher education. The Obama administration wants to give students a head start on college.
The new program will allow high school students in 23 states to access up to $20 million in federal money to pay for a semester of college credit.
