CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Plymouth State University is getting $2.2 million in federal grants to support students in its professional counseling and school psychology programs.

The grants, through the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration, will provide stipends to the university’s master’s-level interns studying school counseling and clinical mental health counseling. The internships require between 600 and 1,200 hours, leaving students little time for other work to support themselves or their families.

Created in the wake of the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting, the grant initiative helps provide better trained school professionals to identify and treat troubled students.

The grants are formally being announced Friday in Concord.
