BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The University of Mary has received a federal grant of nearly $1 million to support education of Native American students.

The Indian Professional Development Program is meant to promote the training of high-quality educators to teach in tribal-run schools. The money will be allotted over four years.

The program is being run in partnership with Turtle Mountain Community College. It will fund a bachelor’s degree education program at Turtle Mountain and master’s degree programs at the University of Mary.

The North Dakota grant is one of 20 awarded around the country.
