The U.S Department Of Education Awards Nearly $228 Million

Breakdown of the 97 HBCUs receiving funding

 On September 18th, 2012 the U.S Department of Education awarded nearly 228 million dollars to HBCU’s in five-year grants. The formula for the grants is formulated by the number of Pell Grant recipients per year, number of graduates over the past with graduate school or professional training, which determines a proportion of total funding which is appropriated to each institution.

The U.S Secretary of Education, Anne Duncan said, “HBCU’s have made enduring, even staggering contributions to American life despite the steep financial challenges many have faced….The grants will help these important institutions continue to provide their students with the quality education they need to compete in the global economy.

The Grio released negative connotations in an article, “Obama White House awards HBCU’s, but how will the money be managed?” The article depicts HBCU’s as schools who have Presidents that mismanage funds and questions their ability to manage the funding. Hence, 16 HBCU’s have vacancies for President.

Yet, although HBCU’s account for only three percent of all U.S. colleges, they produce 40 percent of the nation’s black science graduates. They are responsible for generating 75 percent of all African-American Ph.D.’s and 70 percent of black federal judges.

We attempted to reach out to Jim Bradshaw at the U.S Department of Education but, he was not available for questioning.
