Request For Proposals (RFPs) From HBCUs: New Funding Opportunity to Support Student Parents - $75K grants available

Request For Proposals (RFPs) From HBCUs: New Funding Opportunity to Support Student Parents - $75K grants available
Posted By: Reginald Culpepper on August 09, 2022

Ascend at the Aspen Institute today announced the launch of the Black and Native Family Futures Fund, a new grant opportunity created with and for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) to support the success of Black and Native student parents in college.

More than half of the nearly 4 million student parents in the United States are students of color, with Black and Native students more likely to be balancing school and parenting than other groups of students.



With institutional cultures that are rooted in family, community, and holistic supports – key elements of a supportive campus for student parents – HBCUs and TCUs are uniquely positioned to identify and address the needs of Black and Native student parents.

The Black and Native Family Futures Fund will provide $75,000 grants and expert technical assistance over 18 months (November 2022 - April 2024) to each of the selected institutions. Interested institutions must submit their application by 11:59 pm ET on September 14, 2022. Eligibility and selection criteria are available in the full Request for Proposals.
