Retool Your School: Home Depot HBCU Grant
The home improvement giant The Home Depot is looking for the most deserving HBCU to give a $50,000 grant to. The grant called Retool Your School is to be used for the campus improvement project of the university or college’s choice. There are 56 colleges and universities competing for one $50,000 grant and ten $10,000 grants. Last year Elizabeth City State University took home the grand prize and used their money to install a baseball field. The ten other schools selected for the second prize used their grants for many different ventures. For example, Fisk University used their grant for pedestrian area landscaping and Tuskegee University used theirs for hall improvements and lighting updates.
The competition results are based purely on online voting. Which is open to everyone and you can vote once daily. Voting will end on April 22nd and May 16th is when winners will be announced. Until then you can use this link to vote
