BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Three community colleges in the Dakotas are getting large grants through a federal effort to boost job training across the country.
In North Dakota, Bismarck State College is getting more than $9.9 million. In South Dakota, Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown and Mitchell Technical Institute in Mitchell each are getting about $2.5 million.
