CLEVELAND – March 2, 2010- CampusEAI Consortium, the creators of myCampus, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Web 2.0 portal solution that provides students, faculty and staff with access to their academic and social information all in one place, is proud to announce that the CampusEAI Grant Program is being featured as part of the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

The Initiative was established in 1980 by President Jimmy Carter as a federal program to help Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) overcome the effects of discriminatory treatment and provide quality education. The program exists today to help strengthen the capacity of HBCUs to provide excellence in education.

The CampusEAI Grant Program was selected for inclusion in the initiative due to the fact that not only does is provide an opportunity to assist HBCUs through funding, but also due to the Program’s history for awarding HBCUs with the endowment.

HBCUs that have received the CampusEAI Grant include:
•   Albany State University
•   Florida A&M University
•   Hampton University
•   Spelman College
•   Tuskegee University
•   University of Maryland - Eastern Shore
•   University of the Virgin Islands
•   Virginia State University

The CampusEAI Grant Program is designed to cover the cost of software, hardware and services associated with the implementation of a Campus Portal Solution, an intranet portal that integrates with online learning, administrative computing and student services systems. The Grant offering includes hardware, software, project management, installation and training costs necessary to install and operate a Campus Portal, in the form of a grant which ranges between $250,000 to $1,000,000 in software, hardware and services, depending on the size and requirements of the school. The Grant is available in a limited number to institutions in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia.  

“We are proud to continue our support of HBCUs through the CampusEAI Grant Program’s inclusion in this important initiative, said Anjli Jain, Executive Director of the CampusEAI Consortium. “ Being acknowledged by the White House is not only an honor, but also a way to spread the word about our program to other HBCUs that may be eligible for the grant.”
