CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire is one of four states receiving a federal grant to prepare students for careers in fields related to science, technology engineering and math.

The $2.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education will fund the New Hampshire Out-of-School-Time Career Pathways Initiative, which will work with industry partners and the Conway, Hinsdale, Laconia and Manchester school districts.

The five-year program is designed to help students earn industry-recognized credentials for remote work and to complete paid internships in in-demand fields.
