Republican Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan will sign a law that gives free tuition to community college students in the state, his spokeswoman said.
The legislation sets aside $15 million per year for scholarships to give students up to $5,000 for community college tuition. To be eligible, students need to have at least a 2.3 high school grade point average, be enrolled in at least 12 credit hours and come from a household that makes less than $100,000 per year for a single parent and $150,000 for two parents.
