Intel Invests in N.C. A&T to Support More Students in STEM Pathways; Six HBCUs Will Share $4.5 Million in Grant Funding

Thanks to more than $1 million in grant funding from Intel, a group of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University undergraduate and graduate students will receive two-year scholarships to continue their education in computer science, computer engineering and electrical engineering.

On June 27, Intel unveiled a three-year, $4.5 million HBCU grant program to encourage students at six historically black colleges and universities – Florida A&M University, Howard University, Morgan State University, North Carolina A&T, Prairie View A&M University and Tuskegee University – to remain in STEM pathways.

That scholarship support will have substantial impact at A&T, which produces more African American engineers than any university in America at the undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels. In addition to scholarships, the grant will fund student programs and labs, workshops and research experiences.
