As part of their ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, Morgan Stanley will provide scholarships and career training for students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
When Wayne A.I. Frederick, President of Howard University, sat down for a press interview last year to discuss the importance of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) like Howard—101 institutions across the country that were established before the civil rights movement to serve the African-American community—he didn’t mince words. “[HCBUs] are an essential part of the fabric of higher education because of the contribution they make to diversifying so many fields,” he said, adding, “It’s a danger to the national interest not to invest in these institutions.”
Morgan Stanley believes such investment is critical as well, which is why we are proud to announce the launch of Morgan Stanley HBCU Scholars, an integrated program to strategically engage with and support HBCUs. The program will provide full scholarships for HBCU students at Howard University, Morehouse College and Spelman College and is also designed to support their career skills and readiness to help set them on a life-long path to success.
