BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota has expanded veterans’ education program to help more earn college degrees and certifications.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1kssMVU ) that the federally funded Veterans Upward Bound program has been replaced by the state-funded Veterans Educational Training.

Project Coordinator Jeri Vaudrin says with state funding, the program has gone from being limited to low-income, first-generation college students to helping almost all veterans who want to attend college.

Vaudrin says only eligibility requirements are that they have served for 180 days or have been deployed if they are in the National Guard.

The state Legislature gave the program $274,000 over the next two years.

The program has hubs at North Dakota State University, the University of North Dakota, Minot State University and the University of Mary.
