Strengthening Institutions Program - Part F

Senators Doug Jones (D-Alabama) and Tim Scott (R-South Carolina) and Representatives Alma Adams (D-North Carolina) and Mark Walker (R-North Carolina) introduced the Fostering Undergraduate Talent by Unlocking Resources for Education (FUTURE) Act to continue funding for Tribal Colleges and Universities and Minority Serving Institutions.

 

The FUTURE Act reauthorizes the current funding level of $30 million in mandatory funding to TCUs for two fiscal years.

Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe College is one of the nation's 37 Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), who together are the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC). Collectively TCUs are seeking reauthorization of the Strengthening Institutions Program - Part F which provides $30M annually. Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe College receives approximately $500,000 annually.

TCUs provide high quality, culturally appropriate higher education opportunities to some of the most rural, isolated, impoverished, and historically undeserved areas of the country. 

Part F is slated to end after FY2019 if Congress does not authorize and appropriate new funding.
