Student Freedom Initiative Honor The Past Guiding Our Future

ABOUT US

The Student Freedom Initiative is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring freedom in professional and life choices for students attending Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), with an initial focus on juniors and seniors earning science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) degrees at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

Our program is expected to launch with the 2021-2022 academic year, and our efforts will initially be focused on junior and senior STEM majors at select Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
