Adams State University was recently awarded more than $5.7 million through two federal Title V grants for Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs). These awards will bring the total Title V funding Adams State has received since 2000 to more than $23.4 million.
“We are very proud to receive these grants that recognize and further our work to educate and serve rural, minority, and low income students,” said Adams State President Beverlee J. McClure. “Expanding educational access and improving student success will enhance the sustainability of our communities.”

The award will total $3,178,389 over the next five years, with $649,359 awarded the first year. Adams State’s partner on the project is University of New Mexico-Taos, a two-year HSI.
