DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Nova Southeastern University is getting $7 million in grants to help Hispanic and other minority students who are pursuing high-demand science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) related programs and careers.

The Title V grants from the U.S. Department of Education will help increase the number of Hispanic and other students pursuing degrees in the STEM fields and prepare them for careers in these growing sectors and post-baccalaureate computer science-related degrees.

U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz will join NOVA school administrators to discuss the grants at a press conference Monday.
