One student from each institution will receive the grant for the 2018-2019 school year. 

The HBCUs are Xavier University in Louisiana, Wilberforce University in Wilberforce, Ohio, Tuskegee University in Alabama and Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Florida.   

According to an official statement, the four students from each school will be able to use their $25,000 scholarship for study in various fields, such as literature, creative arts, education, business and communications. 

All applicants must be able to maintain a 3.5 GPA or above.  

Finalists and winner will be chosen by the selected universities. 

Winners of the grants will be revealed this summer.
