Lincoln University receives grant

Lincoln University in Jefferson City will receive $100,000 to support a program aimed at helping students prepare for life after college.

The school was one of 30 institutions selected to receive grant funding from UNCF, or the United Negro College Fund’s new Career Pathways Initiative (CPI).

School leaders says “Project Careers” will help the school ensure the students are prepared to find work or enroll in graduate programs.

“We are gratified that UNCF, an organization that has a long history of helping minority students succeed, has chosen to partner with Lincoln University of Missouri through their Career Pathway Initiative, because it underscores the fact that the work that we do both in terms of our curricular and co-curricular activities is a successful model,” said Dr. Said Sewell, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs in a press release. “Increasing career-prepared students at Lincoln is integral to our mission and imbued in the university ‘s strategic plan. President Rome has set the goal of 70% of our graduates being employed in their field or entering into graduate/professional school within six months after graduation.”
