North Dakota has expanded a Veterans' program to help more people earn college degrees.

The federally-funded Veterans Upward Bound program has been replaced by the new state-funded Veterans Educational Training. The state legislature has given the project $274,000 for the next two years.

Officials say rather than being limited to low-income men and women, the new program means almost all Veterans who want to attend college can be helped.
