To those of you who give Advanced Placement to low-income students

If your school/school district gives Advanced Placement Courses to low-income students you should be aware that there is a grant award to you.  Be aware of the short deadline.

The AP Test Fee program awards grants to eligible State Educational Agencies (SEAs) to enable them to pay all or a portion of advanced placement test fees on behalf of eligible low-income students who are enrolled in an advanced placement course and plan to take an advanced placement exam. The program is designed to increase the number of low-income students who take advanced placement tests and receive scores for which college academic credit is awarded.
Deadline: December 15, 2008
Awards: Discretionary grants from $2,000 to $3,000,000
Eligibility: SEAs in any state, including the District of Columbia
