The University System of New Hampshire has added two more colleges to a program that offers free in-state tuition to Pell Grant-eligible students.

The Granite Guarantee program bridges the gap between a Pell Grant recipient’s total federal and state aid package and the cost of in-state tuition. It was launched last year at the University of New Hampshire, where more than 400 students are currently enrolled in the program.

The program has now been extended to Plymouth State University and Keene State College.

“I applaud USNH for expanding this game-changing opportunity for some of New Hampshire’s most high-need students,” Gov. Chris Sununu said in a statement.
