Access to broadband for all Americans is urgent. Read more about how our Student Freedom Initiative (SFI) has developed a repeatable model to address the digital divide in communities hosting HBCUs starting with Orangburg South Carolina.
How it Works
We provide freedom in professional and life choices for juniors and seniors majoring in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at HBCUs. In close collaboration with participating institutions and strategic partners, we provide an income contingent alternative to high cost student loans, internships, mentoring/tutoring, and targeted capacity building. Our 5-year goal is a self-funded program to all STEM juniors and seniors at all HBCUs
