AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine’s U.S. senators say the federal government is awarding nearly $400,000 to the University of Maine at Augusta with a goal of helping low-income students.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins and independent Sen. Angus King say the money is from the federal Department of Education’s Strengthening Institutions Program and it will aid both first-time and non-traditional students. The senators say the money will expand support for low-income students and give more Maine students the ability to attain a college education.

The grant is expected to last five years.
