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.

The money is through a competitive grant program administered by the federal Departments of Labor and Education. The grant winners were announced by the White House. About $450 million was doled out to 270 community colleges nationwide.
