Martin University in Indianapolis has received a $225,000 grant from USA Funds. The school says the money will support its communications strategy and enhance its Student Success Center.
The center offers students academic support, and focuses on improving retention, graduation and career readiness.
"We are deeply grateful for the support of USA Funds and the confidence they have expressed in us by awarding the University this grant. This contribution will significantly enhance our ability to help students become successful graduates, as well as communicate Martin’s mission through increased marketing and branding," President Dr. Eugene White said.
"Consistent with our focus on Completion With a Purpose, promoting success in college and career, USA Funds’ contribution will help this unique institution in our organization’s hometown of Indianapolis enhance its recruitment, retention and graduation of lower-income, minority and adult learners, and other students underrepresented in higher education to prepare them for rewarding careers and fulfilling lives," said Carol D’Amico, USA Funds executive vice president, National Engagement and Philanthropy.
USA Funds is a nonprofit corporation based in Indianapolis.
