Morehouse, Milwaukee Partnership Yields First Admits
Morehouse College recently added ten men from Milwaukee, WI to its roll of incoming freshmen, as the group of students became the first admits to the school on a special entrance and scholarship program aimed at creating college access for Black men in the city.
Funded by Wisconsin and national donors, the young men will attend Morehouse this fall on four-year scholarships totaling more than $800,000. They become the largest-ever group of Wisconsin students to come to Morehouse.
“We’re creating a pathway for student success that runs through our schools and one of the nation’s most renowned institutions of higher education,” said Gregory Thornton, superintendent of Milwaukee Public Schools. “It’s an honor to partner with Morehouse.”
