Performance-Based Requirements, Flat Funding Part of House Proposal for HBCUs

The federal government sets aside roughly $600 million in grants for colleges that serve large populations of minority students, and the proposed reauthorization of the Higher Education Act by House Republicans maintains that funding—with a few new catches.

In order for any of the 1,700 eligible schools to get funds under Title III and Title V, which cover a range of minority-serving, historically black and developing Hispanic-serving institutions, they must graduate or transfer at least 25% of their students. It is the first time that Congress is tying the grant money to a completion benchmark, and lawmakers could increase that threshold down the line.

  1. Wow take that other Florida state law schools. So state of Florida show me the money. Probably can remain #1 if FAMU Law School had the same resources as PWI law schools in the state. Hmmmmm

  2. Fantastic news, performance always trumps propaganda. Great job Rattlers!!!

  3. To the author: “It is the second time FAMU has posted the state’s highest bar exam passage average” – the highest bar exam passage rate was UF. I think you mean that this is the second time FAMU has surpassed the average. Congrats to FAMU though on it’s upward momentum.

  4. FAMU was on point when they selected Lerory Pernell to lead its re-established law school. Go Rattlers!!!

  5. Produce good results and be rewarded. HBCUs can compete for talent they just have to be creative. Congrats.
