BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — United Tribes Technical College is getting a $750,000 matching grant to help complete a science and technology building on the Bismarck campus.

The money is coming from the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community, which operates a Minnesota casino and other enterprises and runs a charitable giving program.

New construction on the United Tribes building this year will add three laboratories, four classrooms, offices and conference areas. The project will complete 16,000 square feet on the center’s second floor.

The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community helped fund initial construction of the building with a $1 million matching grant. The total cost of the center is estimated at $6 million.

United Tribes Technical College serves about 1,200 students annually who come from more than 50 tribal nations around the country.

    Good thing they pay almost no taxes to Minnesota, they can continue to give money to out of state colleges.
