Howard University received a $1 million donation from HBO to establish an endowment fund benefiting students interested in careers in the arts and entertainment industries.
It will provide stipends for students to use toward living and travel expenses related to accepting internships at entertainment companies in Los Angeles, New York and elsewhere. Any student, regardless of current field of study, can apply for the stipends.
HBO made the announcement in in conjunction with an upcoming HBO special, “Between the World and Me,” based on a best-selling book by Ta-Nehisi Coates, a Howard graduate.
