Apple's Fight Against Racism: 5 Million US$ For Universities – New Comedy Sereis For Apple TV+

5 Million US$ For Historically Black Colleges & Universities
At the beginning of this year in January, Apple caused a stir with the announcement of its "Racial Equity & Justice Initiative" – a 100 million US$ program with the task of combatting racism. Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) play a major focus of the program. As reported by USA Today, four HBCUs will be getting 5 million US$ from Apple. The universities, including Alabama A&M University, Howard University, Morgan State University, and Prairie View A&M University, will receive the additional funding from Cupertino over a period of 3 years. With the new funding, the universities are expected to be able to offer courses about hardware technology and processor architecture in order to prepare students for a career in the tech industry. The grants will also be used to pay for student scholarships and fund student internships at Apple.
