JOPLIN, Mo. - Several programs at MSSU get a boost from Uncle Sam. That includes $257,000 for the Upward Bound program. Another $96,000 helps cover costs for work study.
There's about $300,000 for TRIO programs at Missouri Southern, and federal supplemental grants account for another $121,000.
MSSU officials are monitoring the federal budget process to see what that impact will be on campus.
