JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Nearly $1.4 million in federally funded grants has been awarded for summer jobs, internships and other opportunities for at-risk youth.

The state labor department announced the grants, which were awarded to Alaska schools and nonprofits that serve young people who are unemployed or are having trouble finding new jobs or finishing high school.
