  • The National Science Foundation has awarded $20 million to North Dakota State University and the University of North Dakota to develop two research centers.
     
    U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp announced the award Monday. The universities will receive the federal funds over five years.
     
    The money will be used to develop a Center for Regional Climate Studies and a Center for Sustainable Materials Science. Faculty from both universities will participate in the centers.
     
    Heitkamp says the funds will also expand programs to North Dakota's Tribal Colleges to help Native American students interested in pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
     
    The money was authorized through a National Science Foundation program that assists rural universities in expanding their academic research.
