Tennessee State University plans to use $284,000 in grant funds to help students with intellectual and development disabilities prepare for the job market.  

The funds were awarded to TSU along with three other institutions of higher education from the state’s Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.  

TSU will distribute the funds over two years to create a non-degree certificate program called TigerEDGE, which is aimed at helping young adults with disabilities experience college life while also preparing for the job market, the university said.
