High School Students to Tap Federal Aid

More than 1.4 million high school students took college-level courses for credit last year.

​The Department of Education announced Friday that it will make Pell grants available to high school students taking college courses for credit, the latest development in what has been a series of federal student aid experiments.

The federal Pell grant program provides tuition assistance for low- and middle-income students. The department estimates that it will direct up to $20 million in the 2016-2017 award year for approximately 10,000 high school students.
