Ed Dept gives $1B more in relief aid to minority-serving institutions

The U.S. Department of Education will give an additional $1 billion in coronavirus relief to minority-serving institutions, including historically black and tribal colleges, as well as to select other schools that serve high shares of low-income students.The funds are part of the $14 billion in aid directed to colleges in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which President Donald Trump signed into law in March.  As these schools tend to be under-resourced and serve needy students, the funds aim to provide more support for covering their own costs and supporting students.
