Grant helps minority and non-traditional students

October 30, 2003

Albany - Darton College shared a grant with Albany State University to encourage minority and non-traditional students to succeed in the classroom.

A $900,000 Minority and Non-traditional Student Congressional Award funded Darton's ACE program.

ASU used a portion of that grant to form a Black Male Initiative. Students who participated in these programs have improved in school. Darton College student, Matt Hardwick, says, "We were the first, definitely a little pressure, but they've been behind us the whole way to help us achieve. I tell you, I'm currently carrying a 4.0 GPA."

The ACE Fellowship covers tuition, fees, books and offers tutoring and mentoring.

ASU has noticed their largest-ever increase in SAT scores for one of their Black Male Initiative programs.
