As one of the nation’s top HBCUs Morehouse College has been granted $9M from the National Science Foundation. This grant will go towards helping the college to continue creating educational and employment opportunities for minorities interested in studying STEM fields.
Why Morehouse is an Ideal Recipient for the Grant
Morehouse has an established reputation for producing students who go on to earn doctorates in STEM fields. Receiving this grant will help the school to support minority students who are striving for degrees in STEM. Morehouse has also stated that they will share a portion of the grant with Spelman College, another HBCU that educates women of African descent.
The college has also pioneered the iSTEM-Xe project. This innovative project helps to encourage young minority students to study STEM fields. Focused on students in 6th-8th grade, the program gives students the chance to work with exciting and challenging STEM projects.
Additionally, the school is also making strides in medical research. The Morehouse School of Medicine is working with UnitedHealth Group to research if there is a link between sickle cell trait and an increased risk of COVID-19 disease.
