Title III Scholars
At the 2014 National Association of Title III Administrators Technical Assistance Conference, the USDE asked Title III grantees to place increased focus on the competitiveness of our institutions, the cost of education at our institutions and the aggregate loan indebtedness of our students upon graduation.
Meharry Medical College answered the USDEs call by carving our tuition support for ten (10%) percent of the Class of 2015.
The individuals below are the Inagural Cohort of Meharry Medical College Title III Scholars.
