Top-achieving students in Maine who are also living in poverty could qualify for free college tuition if a proposed bill is approved by state lawmakers. The legislation, proposed by independent state Rep. Ben Chipman, would waive tuition at state colleges for students who graduate in the top 25% of their class and live in households making less than $30,000 annually. "[My bill] would help hundreds, if not thousands, of students in Maine," Chipman said.
