ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Larry Hogan says the state will provide scholarships to students who finish high school in three years or less.
 
The governor signed an executive order on Wednesday creating the $6,000 scholarships.
 
Hogan says it's a smart use of tax dollars. That's because the state can reallocate money it would have spent on the student's last year in public high school to help with the first year of college instead.

The site, launched on Wednesday, will provide information on scholarships, grants and loans and ways to save for higher education.

Carney, a Democrat, said that the cost of college is rising at an unsustainable rate.
