The Initiative has begun dispersing funds through its Student Freedom Agreements to eligible applicants attending schools within its initial cohort and has begun the process of upgrading mission-critical technology infrastructure at these institutions.
Initial participating institutions include Claflin University, Clark Atlanta University, Florida A&M University, Hampton University, Morehouse College, Prairie View A&M University, Tougaloo College, Tuskegee University, and Xavier University of Louisiana.
