In 2023, ten accredited HBCUs will be awarded a needs-based grant to enhance an existing space on campus. In the lounges, students can come together to ideate, innovate and problem-solve. This space can also be used to explore the early stages of entrepreneurship and conduct hybrid meetings or webinars with their peers.
ELIGIBILITY & SELECTION PROCESS
HBCUs do not have to opt into RYS Campus Improvement Grant Program in order to apply. Ten winners will be selected by a Home Depot selection committee. Winners will be based on need and a scorecard will guide the selection process.
