Gov. Tom Wolf's new $34.1 billion budget plan includes a couple new programs to help people go to college.
The Democrat on Tuesday asked lawmakers for $8 million to give grants to community college students who remain in Pennsylvania.
Eligible students could get a $2,500 grant to offset tuition or pay down student debt.
Meanwhile, Wolf wants members of the National Guard who re-enlist for six more years to get an added higher-education benefit.
The grants could also be used by spouses or children to attend an institution approved by the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency.
