Monday, October 25, 2010 | 9:58 a.m. CDT

JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri higher education officials are awarding grants to fund projects that help low-income students pay for college.

The Department of Higher Education has about $1.6 million to distribute and the maximum grants will be $100,000.

Not-for-profit and charitable organizations are eligible for the grants. The money is designed to help students who are at risk of not enrolling or completing college.

The federal government is paying for the grants, and the state Department of Higher Education is administering the program.

Organizations must indicate that they intend to apply for the grants by Nov. 15 and submit their applications by the end of November.
