Rhode Island will get $45,248 in federal funding to help low-income students take Advanced Placement exams.
The U.S. Department of Education announced a round of grants for more than 30 states on Wednesday. Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Hampshire were also among the states receiving funding.
The grant amounts were based on state estimates of how many AP tests would be taken by low-income students. Federal officials said the program is intended to pay for all but $12 of the cost of each test, although states can require students to pay more.
