The American Samoa Community College is getting a half a million US dollar grant to establish a computer laboratory.

The funding was requested by Congressman Faleomavaega Eni Hunkin from the US Department of Education.

Congressman Faleomavaega said the establishment of a computer lab at the College would provide students with the opportunity to bridge the digital divide.

He said they would be able to engage in communication and research outside the bounds of local villages.
