FDIC Reaches Out to Black Colleges and Universities

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities have entered into a partnership to increase the number of minority students pursuing careers in the banking industry.

Under the agreement the FDIC will increase its outreach and recruiting programs on black college campuses. It will also funnel projects involving market research and analysis to scholars at black colleges and universities with the hope that students at these educational institutions will become involved in financial research.
