Thurgood Marshall College Fund, Novartis Award $20M To 27 HBCUs As A Part Of A 10-Year Commitment

Black History Month is starting off right with the latest funding coming in for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The Grio reports that 27 HBCUs have been awarded $20 million in faculty research grants and scholarships from the Thurgood Marshall College Fund-Novartis US Foundation HBCU Alliance. The funding for faculty research grants stems from the collaborative effort that launched in 2021 as a 10-year initiative aiming to “achieve a paradigm shift over time to address longstanding, endemic, and historically based disparities.” According to the outlet, the grants will be distributed in an effort to help improve health disparities within the Black community.
