FSU's Homeland Security Grant

A more than $6 million homeland security grant is now in the hands of Florida State University.

The school's learning systems institute beat out more than 250 groups who applied for the grant.

Researchers will use the money to develop a training program for the nation's sea port security officials.

Aubteen Darabi of the Florida State University Learning Systems Initiative says, "We're hoping to make a contribution to the national security by doing this, developing a standards and training for them that could be distributed nationally."

The entire homeland security grant package was $30 million. FSU won the largest amount among the 15 groups and schools chosen.
