Contact your Senator today to urge them to pass the FUTURE Act — a critical bill extending vital funding from the federal government to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) and other Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) to help them also offer quality academic programs in the STEM fields.
The bill was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on September 17, 2019 but mandatory funding for these important institutions has EXPIRED because the Senate has failed to pass this important bill.
We need your voice to help get this bill over the finish line! Contact your Senator HERE to save the FUTURE of STEM education at our nation’s HBCUs and MSIs.
HBCUs, TCUs, HSIs, and other MSIs collectively serve over four million students, accounting for more than one-quarter of all undergraduates and a large share of all students of color. Funding for these programs expired on September 30, 2019. Because of this, these institutions have lost access to a 10-year funding amount of $2.55 billion dollars.
