    Loan group to

    help with books

    Vermont Student Assistance Corp. has announced a new $50,000 program to help low-income high school students cover the costs of books, fees and travel associated with dual enrollment courses.

    Dual enrollment allows some students to take two college classes while still in high school, reducing the costs of college.

    Last year, more than 1,600 Vermont students took the classes on college campuses, online or on-site at a participating high school.

    The new incentive allows low-income students up to $150 in assistance for books, fees and travel to and from the classes.
