MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Five Vermont colleges and the University of Vermont are getting almost $1.9 million from the U.S. Department of Education for programs designed to help students succeed in higher education.

The Vermont grants are among 968 grants for a total of $270 million being distributed across the country.

They are designed to increase the number of low-income college students, first-generation students and those with disabilities to complete a program of study. The programs will include tutoring, help in course selection, information about financial aid and other services.

The Vermont grants range from $261,030 for Southern Vermont College in Bennington to $393,484 for Johnson State College. Other grants went to the University of Vermont, Castleton State College, the Community College of Vermont and Vermont Technical College in Randolph.
