Obama noted that the nation’s 105 HBCUs now receive more than $4 billion in direct funding from the federal government, and that millions more flow to the campuses because of his administration’s work to expand Pell Grants for low- and middle-income students. He said the move to tighten Parent Plus loans was envisioned as a way to ensure that the families of students at HBCUs did not fall too far into debt on the loans, which have higher limits and cost more than other types of higher education borrowing.
With his presidency winding down, the president said, he is working on plans for life after leaving the White House. After some sleep and a nice vacation, he said, he plans to work closely with his “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative, a program he established two years ago that provides mentoring and other help to at-risk young men in 250 communities around the country. He also said he plans to establish a program to help develop leaders and channel activism into tangible change.
Looking forward to great things from this initiative.
