MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas State University has been awarded a $600,000 grant from the U.S. State Department to bring international engineering students to campus.

The university's engineering extension program will use the grant to bring 20 students from 13 countries to Kansas this summer to study environmental stewardship.

The five-week program will start in July and conclude in August with a trip to Washington. Students will tour several sites throughout Kansas, including the Manhattan zoo, Konza Prairie Biological Station, a nuclear power reactor and a hydroelectric dam in Lawrence.

A condition of the program requires exposing the students to American culture. Activities designed to teach them about Kansas and the United States include a river float trip and July 4 fireworks.
