Affirmative Action News

update from a friend in St. Louis

The Center for Equal Opportunity, a group based in Virginia, along with the American Civil Rights Institute both oppose scholarship, internships, and summer programs that are only available to minority students. They have filed complaints with the U.S. Deparment of Education and urged over 100 universities to either open such minority-only programs to non-minority students or to shut them down. The Department of Education has in turn requested that a number of universities review their scholarships and programs that are available only to minority students. Several St. Louis universities have determined that such programs are in violation of anti-discrimination policies. St. Louis University ended its African-American scholarship, and Washington University in St. Louis dropped the race requirement from its formerly minority-only John B. Ervin scholarship. The school is also reviewing a number of other race-based scholarships.
