Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have historically played and continue to play a critical role in African American achievement. While representing only 4% of colleges, HBCUs represent 14% of African American college graduates, 25% of African Americans with STEM bachelor's degrees, and an even greater percentage of African Americans with teaching, medical, and other professional degrees.
The following HBCUs have agreed to participate in the Student Freedom Initiative for the 2021–2022 academic year. A list of all majors at these HBCUs that are approved for participation in our income-contingent funding arrangement is included beneath each school below.
We depend on the generous support of individuals, corporate partners, community advocates, and others to achieve our mission. With your help, we can lift up generations of students and empower them for success.
