Maryland students who finish high school in three years or less will receive $6,000 in college scholarships, beginning next fall.

Gov. Larry Hogan signed an executive order last week creating the scholarships. He called the action a smart use of tax dollars because the state can reallocate money it would have spent on a student's last year in public high school to help with the first year of college instead.

Last year, 1,065 students across Maryland graduated before the start of the senior year. On average, about 1,000 students have graduated early each year since 2010.
