Finally, a college that is actually looking to give us money for school and not the other way around. If you are an African American woman with a talent or interest in computer science, Florida A&M could possibly be the place for you. The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded the school a grant valued at $552,000, so they could drum up business of those who otherwise wouldn’t be interested.
The grant money is aimed at African American women because they are disproportionately underrepresented in the areas of technology and that, as they say, is the wave of the future. The women out there who are interested, can go here to get more details on the program. The deadline is July 10.
