Fresno State is getting part of a $5-million award to fund agricultural research and education.

"Co-Bank," a bank based in Denver, chose 31 universities all across the country for this award -- three of them in California.

The money will be used for academic research, scholarships for students, cooperative education, and leadership development. U.C. Davis and Cal-Poly San Luis Obispo will also share part of the money.

The bank chose the universities based on the nature and extent of their agricultural programs.
