CLC awarded $500,000 Upward Bound grant
Seven northeastern Minnesota colleges, including Central Lakes College, have been awarded federal grants to help low-income students get started in college.
Congressman Jim Oberstar announced Monday that the U.S. Department of Education will award $1.9 million in grants for the department's Upward Bound Program, reaching 429 students.
Central Lakes College will receive an Upward Bound grant of $500,000.
