Pay It Forward Grant: Howard University Engineering & Architectural

The Forward Foundation is proud to award The Pay It Forward Grant to Howard University College of Engineering & Architecture on behalf of Black American Engineering Scholarship Award mentor and Howard University alumni Dr. Carl Moore.

Carl donates his time and talent as a mentor to The Forward Foundation’s Black American Engineering Scholarship Award. This program combines scholarship with mentorship to increase racial equity in the field of engineering by funding students with scholarships and providing them with professional mentors to assist them in their challenging university programs.
The Pay It Forward Mentorship Grant was created to show gratitude for individuals like Dr. Moore who donate their time as mentors. At the close of the school year, each mentor is awarded a $2,500 grant from the Forward Foundation and is provided with the opportunity to direct the grant in their name to a public charity or educational institution of their choice.
