2 Oklahoma schools get Student Support Services grant.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Two Oklahoma universities are receiving federal grants for services to help college students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds succeed in higher education.
 
The U.S. Department of Education announced Friday that East Central University in Ada and the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond will each get $220,000 in grant money.
 
The grants fund academic tutoring, assistance in course selection, information about financial aid and economic literacy, and support and resources.
 
The grants will also help students transfer from two to four-year colleges or from undergraduate to graduate or professional-studies levels.
 
Earlier, the federal agency announced an initial round of Student Support Services awards of $270 million for 968 institutions in every state.
