Purpose of Program: The AP Test Fee program awards grants to eligible State educational agencies (SEAs) to enable them to pay all or a portion of advanced placement test fees on behalf of eligible low-income students who (1) are enrolled in an advanced placement course and (2) plan to take an advanced placement exam. The program is designed to increase the number of low-income students who take advanced placement tests and receive scores for which college academic credit is awarded. Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.330B. Applications for grants under the AP Test Fee program, CFDA number 84.330B, must be submitted electronically using the Governmentwide Grants.gov Apply site at www.Grants.gov. Through this site, you will be able to download a copy of the application package, complete it offline, and then upload and submit your application.

On February 15, 2012, we published in the Federal Register (77 FR 8848) a notice inviting applications for the AP Test Fee fiscal year (FY) 2012 competition (February 15 notice). That notice established an April 6, 2012, deadline for eligible applicants to apply for funding under this program. We are reopening the competition to eligible applicants because additional funds have become available. The February 15 notice stated that for FY 2012, the Department expected to award $19,962,200 in new grants under this program. Based on the anticipated number of applicants and other information available to the Department, we expected this amount to be sufficient to pay up to $38 per advanced placement exam for up to three exams per low-income student. An additional $4,750,000 in FY 2012 funds have become available. Based on the anticipated number of applicants and other information available to the Department, we expect the new total amount of funds available for awards, $24,712,200, to be sufficient to pay the full cost of each advanced placement exam, with no limitation on the number of exams per low-income student. We are reopening the FY 2012 competition to give eligible applicants an opportunity to submit revised applications that reflect the new total amount of funds available for new awards.
