GAINESVILLE, FL. (EEF News) – The Education Equalizer Foundation and the Common Black College Application have teamed up to begin a retention program for students who applied and were admitted to a CBCA school! “There have been thousands of students that have received millions of dollars in college scholarships and dozens of acceptances to HBCUs from using the Common Black College Application,” said Mr. Robert Mason.

The Education Equalizer Foundation is hosting a working session at The Florida College Access Network Summit alongside Mr. Robert Mason, CEO and Founder of the Common Black College Application, to create a retention strategy for CBCA schools. EEF CEO Scott and CBCA CEO Mason will lead a working session to unveil the Black College Equalizers program. “Tennessee State University had a record enrollment of first-time freshmen last year; many students admitted completed the Common Black College Application,” Scott continued. “I am excited to partner with Mr. Mason to help HBCUs create a retention strategy specifically designed for CBCA applicants.”
In this working session, FCAN attendees will learn about the Black College Equalizer partnership between the Education Equalizer Foundation and the Common Black College Application. FCAN attendees will bring their ideas to this working session and will explore how to best serve this growing population of students interested in attending one of the 60+ CBCA member schools.
Studies indicate that Black students need postsecondary coaches to guide their education journey. They require general assistance with applications: admissions and financial aid, emergency aid during the transition to college, support for students with family obligations, public benefits programs, and mental health support. Join The Education Equalizer Foundation and the Common Black College Application to brainstorm strategies for the Black College Equalizer program to prepare middle through high schoolers for college success at CBCA member schools.
