    Hello, My name is Andrea Hammond and I aspire to attend Xavier university of Louisiana this up coming fall. I will be an incoming freshman if I am able to attend. Due to financial reasons this dream is still in the air at this point. I read the article on the grants going to the HBCU’s and was wondering how could a student receive such funding from the actual school itself or of any other ways like maybe a sponsor? I would really appreciate the information.

    Thank you.
