MSU hopes to retain engineering student with $1M grant

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - (10/30/16) - Michigan State University hopes a $1 million grant will keep engineering students in school.

MSU says dozens of students could receive $8,000 a year in tuition and support services for two years, thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation.

Professor S. Patrick Walton says many talented students are lost each year due to a lack of money for tuition. He says the grants should help solve that problem.

The first awards will go out for the 2017-18 academic year. The money will also help connect students with internship opportunities.
