Entergy Named Top Supporter of HBCU Engineering Programs


In 2018, Entergy leaders announce a $2 million grant to Southern University's engineering school.

US Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine has named Entergy one of the top 20 industry supporters of historically Black colleges and universities' engineering schools. Entergy is the only utility company in this year's top 20 list.

Entergy has contributed more than $7.4 million to HBCUs in the company's service area. The grants fund facility and curriculum improvements, technology upgrades, scholarships, and internship and mentoring programs. HBCUs produce 30% of all Black graduates of science and engineering doctorate programs.

That support is part of how Entergy works with local educational institutions to cultivate a workforce that can support the continued economic development of the Gulf South region and reflects the diversity of the communities we serve.
