Grants program to help Indian students

Pierre, South Dakota (AP) Febuary 2011

Federal money will be used at South Dakota’s public universities to increase the retention rate and success rate of Indian students.

The federal Education Department will provide $216,000 for the six universities.

State officials say it’s an expansion of the College Access Challenge Grant program that’s already used at the state’s technical institutes and at tribal colleges and tribal universities.

The state Education Department said Indian students make up 1.9 percent of the student population in state universities and 3.5 percent of the enrollment in the four technical institutes.
