A federal grant of nearly $1.7 million is going to help low-income students in New Hampshire go to college.

It's the first time New Hampshire has received funding through the Department of Education's Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs.

It will support 500 seventh-grade students at middle schools in Berlin, Claremont, Franklin and Laconia, as well as the Lisbon Regional School, Stewartstown Community School and Whitefield Elementary School.

The students will receive programming support through their first year of college and will be eligible for scholarships.
