challenge grants

The state Senate passed two major floor amendments to the "challenge grant" bill for higher education.

One dealt with NDSU and Planned Parenthood, the other with allowing students at the state's two private colleges to participate in the challenge grants.

The challenge grants require the institutions to raise money, and the state matches it. For every $2 the institutions’ foundations raise, the state will match it with $1. The bill has a $20 million cap.
