New Scholarship Program at HBCU in Ohio

Central State University, the historically black educational institution in Wilberforce, Ohio, received a $3.1 million grant from the Choose Ohio First Scholarship fund, which was established by the state legislature. Under the program Central State will be able to provide full-tuition scholarships to about 30 students who have expressed their goals of achieving a degree in mathematics, mathematics education, or computer science.

The university will recruit students from local high schools as well as community colleges.
