Education Department Issues Nearly $11 Million in Grants to Colleges and Universities With Large Percentages of Black Students

The U.S. Department of Education announced grants totaling nearly $10.8 million to 23 colleges and universities with predominantly black student bodies. The grants, made under the Predominantly Black Institutions Program, will fund student counseling and tutoring services, faculty and staff development, curriculum development, community outreach programs, and teacher education programs. Eligible institutions are not historically black institutions but must have a student body that is at least 40 percent black.
