The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is working with the Small Business Administration, Southern University, and Xavier University on a workshop to be held at Southern University in Baton Rouge, LA, later this year to be announced. The National Workshop on Entrepreneurship for Historically Black Colleges and Universities will target African-American students with the specific goal of creating an awareness among students about business ownership as one of their options for the future. Lee Allen, who serves as the National Black Chamber of Commerce's (NBCC) national federal liaison, hopes to have input on the NBCC planning committee and get interested African-American businesses involved. The National Institute of Health has awarded the Office of Minority Affairs at the University of Florida College of Medicine a five-year grant of $463,380 to fund the short-term Minority Research Training Program. This will allow a group of 15 minority students in their junior year and above to participate each summer in a 10-1 2 week research project conducted by the College of Medicine faculty.

The City College of New York's School of Education has received a $153,350 grant from the United States Department of Education's Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology program. The grant will enhance the capacity of education and liberal arts faculty, who are involved in teacher preparation to integrate the latest technology into teacher training. The ultimate goal is to implement a new technology-rich teacher preparation program at CCNY for full implementation by September 2000.

Their specific goals were to establish a scholarship fund for Black Colleges and Universities in need of financial assistance.

The total amount of his gift to the university was $84,700.
