JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)
The Lincoln University Board of Curators has approved funding to give laptops to its students.
Roughly 1,300 laptops -- Lenovo ThinkPadE14’s -- will be given to students enrolled in at least 12 credit hours.
It will cost $812,500 and the university is using a grant through the National Telecommunications and Information Administration Connecting Minority Communities Pilot Program, according to a university official.
Misty Nunn, executive director of university and alumni relations, said in an email that the university decided to make this move, “to provide educational access for our students.”
“This program allows us to remove the technology barriers our students might face,” Nunn said.
