Southern Company Launches $50M Initiative for Students at HBCUs
Southern Company and its subsidiaries have launched a $50 million, multiyear initiative for students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs),
The four priorities of this program are:
1. Providing critical scholarship dollars to ensure talented students can attend and complete college.
2. Equip HBCU students with access to new technology and train them to use the technology to solve real-world problems.
3. Exposing HBCU students to curricula, mentoring and pathways to funding that increase their access to entrepreneurship.
4. Developing a corporate pipeline for leadership and career development, beginning with internships provided by Southern Company and corporate partners, to create avenues to prosperity.
The initiative will also provide support for students attending select HBCUs within the Southern Company system’s service footprint in Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia and North Carolina.
“This investment is a statement of our belief that America needs these HBCU graduates to ensure a thriving economy for generations to come,” says Thomas A. Fanning, chairman, president and CEO of Atlanta, GA-headquartered Southern Company.
“We invite others to partner with us to create the scholarships, internship, and opportunities to train the leaders of tomorrow,” adds Fanning.
Further details about this competitive program will be announced by May 1, 2020. The first round of funding will be awarded in time for the academic year beginning in Fall 2021.
