Howard University recently announced that the school had been given a $5 million gift from Eddie C. Brown (BSEE’ 61) and C. Sylvia Brown (BS’ 62). The funds will support the Graduation Retention Access to Continued Excellence (GRACE) Grant for students facing financial barriers.
Eddie Brown leads Brown Capital Management as its founder, chairman, and chief executive officer. The firm is a Baltimore-based asset management firm, the second oldest African American-owned investment management firm in the U.S.
“I remember a minister of ours said something that we never forgot,” said Eddie Brown. “That those who are blessed should be a blessing to someone, especially those less fortunate. We always remember that. I was blessed to receive my college education debt-free, and I think it’s important to offer those less fortunate the opportunity to do so as well.”
