While funding boost for community colleges possible, lawmakers skeptical of Wolf grant proposal

Lawmakers are expressing skepticism of a grant program proposed in Gov. Tom Wolf’s budget that would help underwrite community college tuition for students who stay in Pennsylvania, saying the proposal is presently lacking detail and the money could be better used elsewhere.

The $8 million line item, dubbed “Educate and Stay in PA,” would give one-time grants of up to $2,500 to community college students who stay and work in the state after graduation.
