Delay in Federal Funding is Affecting HBCUs

From Inside Higher Education: "The Senate's failure to renew $255 million in annual mandatory funding for historically black colleges is already having consequences on campuses, wrote Harry L. Williams, president and CEO of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund... The group, which represents public historically black colleges, had called on the Senate to pass the FUTURE Act, which would have provided a short-term extension of Title III, Part F, funds that pay for STEM education at HBCUs."

The full letter from the Thurgood Marshall College Fund can be read here.
