Foundation Announces $1M in Grants to Howard U., HBCUs

Howard University is among three historically Black colleges and universities to receive a grant aiming to help diversify the STEM workforce.

The PSEG Foundation, which recently announced the $1 million grant to help underrepresented students in STEM education programs, has a long history of supporting programs that empower diverse and inclusive communities with a focus on addressing inequities.

“HBCUs have a long history of offering an exceptional educational experience while enriching the lives of Black students and families and providing the resources that empower students to succeed in various STEM careers,” Calvin Ledford Jr., PSEG Foundation president, said in a press release. “This support is exemplary of our vision to build equitable and prosperous communities, amplifying the direction we have been heading by providing support to organizations including the United Negro College Fund and Thurgood Marshall College Fund, just to name a few.”

Hampton University and North Carolina Agriculture & Technical State University will also share the grant funding.

Howard will use its portion to offer six scholarships to undergraduate Environmental Studies majors, while North Carolina A&T will use its grant to educate a diverse and competitive talent pool, with high priority given to residents of New Jersey enrolled in the College of Engineering, College of Science and Technology, College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, or the Willie A. Deese College of Business and Economics.
