HBCU Fellows to Receive Entrepreneurial Fellowship



The Center for Minority Serving Institutions at the University of Pennsylvania, along with recruiting marketing platform The Whether, has formed a new initiative focused on increasing the number of entrepreneurs who graduated from Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

Twenty-five fellows from 17 HBCUs will receive the Mary Ellen Pleasant Entrepreneur Fellowship which offers them the resources to build a career-advising startup designed to assist their peers.

The program is slated to start in 2019.
