A $1.039 million federal grant to D’Youville College will double the number of students in a program that increases diversity in nursing education and extend it for another three years.

The funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which continues a previously awarded Nursing Workforce Diversity Program grant, is expected to serve 100 high school and college students.

Earlier grants in 2007 and 2010 served 50 students.
