The Governor's office announced $373,348 in grants from Appalachian Regional Commission which are designated to programs at both Snead State College and the Huntsville campus of Calhoun Community College.
The grant provides $226,000 for Snead State. Part of the money goes to Apple's App Development Pilot Program specifically designed for community college. The money pays for things like Mac computers and iPads.
The other program at Snead State to benefit from the grant teaches "airframe and power plant technology used in the aviation industry, allowing students to become licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration and obtain industry credentials and certifications," according to Governor Ivey's office.
The courses will be taught at Albertville Regional Airport.
The remainder of the grant money goes to an aerospace welding program at the Huntsville campus of Calhoun Community College.
