One of the most elite institutions for Black women in the country is receiving a huge grant from ExxonMobil, $1 million to put towards scholarships for women interested in pursuing technology related degrees.

The historically Black college made the announcement Friday saying that six women will be eligible for the scholarships which will cover their tuition, fees, books, supplies and room and board.

Speaking on the grant, the President of Spelman College Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum says the grant will help the institution prepare women for careers in math and science.

“Spelman College has the distinction of being the leading producer of black females who go on to earn doctoral degrees in science and engineering. This generous investment will help build on this achievement by enhancing our capacity to develop and prepare women for successful leadership in the fields of math and science.”

Congratulations Spelman!
