Higher Education Grants or Gifts of Interest to African Americans


Here is this week’s news of grants or gifts to historically Black colleges and universities or for programs of particular interest to African Americans in higher education. The College of Nursing at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis has received a four-year, $4 million grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration to support increasing the number and diversity of nurse midwives in the Mississippi Delta region. The college launched a doctor of nursing practice degree program concentration in nurse midwifery in 2021, with the goal of improving health outcomes for pregnant women and their babies. The new grant will provide stipends to educate 12-14 nurse midwifery students annually. It will also allow an expansion of clinical learning sites.
