Black Colleges Included In Supplemental Budget

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Martin O'Malley is asking for an additional $4.1 million in his supplemental budget to go directly to the state's four historically black colleges and universities or their students.
    
The money would go toward converting adjunct instructors to full-time faculty at the institutions and providing scholarships.
    
O'Malley unveiled the supplemental budget earlier this week.
    
Maryland's Legislative Black Caucus in February requested a five-year, $70 million allocation to help the schools.
    
Chair of the caucus, Delegate Aisha Braveboy, D-Prince George's, calls the additional funds "progress" and insists that the body will continue to push for more funding.
    
The supplemental budget also directs the Maryland Higher Education Commission to undertake a study that will serve as the basis for the development of a plan that will ensure the success of the schools.
