Montana receives federal funding to help low-income students pay for Advanced Placement (AP) tests.
Last year they assisted just over 500 students, but the Office of Public Instruction said, this time around they are capable of helping more than 900 qualifying students.
OPI applies for the grant and this year they'll receive over $40,000 to help students. Each exam costs $89 and with assistance from the state, those who qualify could pay only $10.
Students need to contact their schools directly and inquire about discounted fee rates. Some schools even pick up the remaining $10 tab.
