Considering an HBCU?

“As fishing methods evolved, so has the equipment that is used. This equipment, known as gear or tackle, is most often kept in a tackle box for organization and safekeeping. Just as the toolbox is important to the craftsman or the mechanic, the tackle box is a necessity for an angler. “

No matter where we are in life, there is gear or equipment that can be used to make the most of that stage. Whether researching higher education options, or  digging into some of America’s celebrated institutions, you can find a list of accredited Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) here.

Clink the links to learn of funding options on the institution’s website. You can also review a profile of the school provided by the National Center for Education Statistics.

We do not proclaim this information to be the only source for any particular entity. Nor is it our goal to tell anyone where or how they should pursue their future. But we ARE about information. So consider this a starting point; a porch light of sorts to help you see your next steps.
