  Southern New Hampshire University has been awarded a $3.9 million “First in the World” innovation grant from the Federal Department of Education.

SNHU was among two dozen colleges and universities nationwide selected for the program meant to improve access to higher education for non-traditional students.

SNHU will develop a system that helps catch-up older students who are academically underprepared for college without remedial coursework. Instead, the school plans to help fill that gap through a support system integrated into the project-based College for America program.

The 24 schools selected for the program will split $75 million in federal grants.

There were nearly 500 applications submitted.
