HOUSTON - $20 million in scholarships are available to help students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
Students who qualify can receive $10,000 a year for three years, totaling $30,000, for studying health, technology, or business. It's funded through the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and Novartis U.S. Foundation.
"There should always be a way for students to pursue furthering their education. I know for a lot of people, including myself, you know sometimes it's a struggle," said TSU student Mikhail Cox.
Students wrestle with the high cost of education, especially those studying health and medicine.
"A lot of people who are very dedicated to those types of professions often can't afford it," said TSU student Kaitlin Littleberry.
