A student from Chicago, Illinois earned acceptance letters from 23 Black colleges and universities, with $300,000 in scholarships, reports ABC News.

From ABC News:

Ariyana Davis is an 18-year-old senior at Mother McAuley Liberal Arts High School. She was able to apply to dozens of schools thanks to the Common Black College Application that allows students to apply to up to 50 HBCUs for a mere $35. She also applied and got accepted to Eastern Illinois University, a predominantly white institution…

“It was important for me to go to an institution that feels like home,” Davis added.

When her acceptances started to trickle in, Davis said she felt “excited and overjoyed.” The second-generation college student, who was offered a total of $300,000 in financial aid from all the schools, added that she felt “really grateful.”

Davis will attend Alcorn State University in Mississippi and is thinking about a master’s degree possibly at the University of Illinois, reports USA TODAY College.
