WINNEBAGO, Neb. (AP) - The federal government has awarded $519,033 to the Winnebago Tribe to help improve education on the reservation in northeast Nebraska.

The federal grant is part of a larger program to better prepare students for college and careers. The U.S. Education Department recently awarded more than $5.3 million nationwide.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan says the government is working to create new opportunities for American Indian youth to succeed.

In Nebraska, the Winnebago Tribe’s Ho Chunk community development corporation will oversee the grant.
