UC riverside hbcu grant

RIVERSIDE, Calif. – The University of California-Historically Black Colleges and Universities Initiative has awarded UC Riverside a $156,417 grant to encourage more African American undergraduates to enroll in UC graduate programs.

A total of 18 African American students from historically black colleges and universities (HBCU) will spend eight weeks at the Riverside campus – six each summer – beginning in 2012.

The UCR program – named the Lindon Barrett Scholars Mentoring Program in memory of a UCR scholar of African American literary studies who died in 2008 – will offer a graduate research experience in African American literature and literary studies and mentors for the participants.

The goal of the University of California initiative is to increase the number of African American students enrolling in UC doctoral programs in all disciplines, said Erica Edwards, assistant professor of English and principal investigator of the grant.

Participating students, who must have completed their junior year, will receive financial support to cover travel expenses, room and board, and a $3,000 stipend. Those who are accepted into the graduate program will receive further support for their Ph.D. program.
