  EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan State University hopes a $1 million grant will keep engineering students in school.
   MSU says dozens of students could receive $8,000 a year in tuition and support services for two years, thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation.
   Professor S. Patrick Walton says many talented students are lost each year due to a lack of money for tuition. He says the grants should help solve that problem.
   The first awards will go out for the 2017-18 academic year. The money will also help connect students with internship opportunities.
