The Walt Disney Co. announced Friday it is donating $1 million to Florida A&M University to help launch a “Storytellers Fund” at the school.
The money will go to FAMU’s School of Journalism and Graphic Communication to establish the fund for five years.
Students selected for what’s called the Disney Future Storytellers Program will receive tuition and housing scholarships, stipends and other services, a news release about the program said.
Disney said a goal of the program is to “increase access to careers in storytelling and innovation” for people from historically marginalized or underrepresented communities.
FAMU is one of four historically Black universities in Florida.
