Clark Atlanta University has received a $10 million grant to advance its students. WSB-TV Atlanta reports the money awarded to the historically Black university will make data science accessible by creating a program under the National Data Science Alliance (NDSA). In five years, “the NDSA will expand the number of Black people earning data science credentials by no fewer than 20,000.” “This is a monumental accomplishment for the HBCU community as a whole. Clark Atlanta University has deep roots in conducting data science research that promotes equity, including the seminal works of scholar and former faculty member W.E.B. Du Bois on these hallowed ground,” CAU President George T. French Jr., Ph.D. said, according to WSB-TV Atlanta.
