The University of New Hampshire is one of 11 schools receiving a federal grant to help train and retain child welfare workers. The $700,000, five-year grant will pay for three programs that bring together the university and the state Division for Children, Youth, and Families. Most of the money will go toward providing full, in-state tuition and fees, plus a stipend, to five students each year who will work in child welfare upon graduation.
