Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, is partnering with eight historically black colleges and universities to offer scholarships that cover at least 30 percent of tuition for dozens of the university’s leading graduate programs. The partnership will also establish long-lasting, collaborative research and teaching relationships between these universities.
Partnering institutions include: Jackson State University in Mississippi, Xavier University of Louisiana, Dillard University in New Orleans, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, Howard University in Washington, D.C., North Carolina Central University, Tougaloo College in Mississippi, and Tuskegee University in Alabama.
“At Case Western Reserve, we are striving to build a more diverse and inclusive community, where humanity, science and technology meet to create a just and thriving world,” said Ben Vinson III, provost and executive vice president at Case Western Reserve Univerity. “With our new North Star Award program, we’re seeking graduate and professional students from such high-quality partnering institutions who uphold those same guiding principles. The program will also create meaningful connections between our institutions that we can use to strengthen and elevate the impact of our educational missions.”
