Tom Joyner, a nationally syndicated radio and television personality and entrepreneur based in Dallas, Texas, launched the Tom Joyner Foundation HBCU Scholarship Relief Fund to assist students at three historically black colleges and universities whose campuses have been shut down because of Hurricane Katrina's devastation.
Joyner will set aside up to $1 million to help students who have been displaced by Hurricane Katrina. The fund will provide $1,000 to every student from Dillard University, Xavier University and Southern University of New Orleans.
The funds will be available to those students until Oct. 31, 2005, who submit their full name, the school from which they transferred, the school they are currently attending and telephone number (cell or land line) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
