The AT&T Foundation issued a $200,000 grant to Stiles Hall, a private, non-profit agency founded in 1884 to provide support to the community and students at the University of California at Berkeley. The grant will be used for a program to recruit black and other minority students and help them navigate the application process at the university.

Winston-Salem State University, the historically black educational institution in North Carolina, received a five-year, $4.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health. The money will be used to establish a research center dedicated to eliminating racial disparities in healthcare.
