KY in Nine State Fight for ED Dollars

Kentucky and eight other states may compete for $200 million in federal educational funds in a third round of the Race to the Top program, Obama administration officials announced Wednesday in Washington. All nine failed to win grants during two previous funding rounds. In addition to Kentucky, the eligible states are Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and South Carolina. They could receive grants ranging from $10 million to $50 million, according to the administration.
