Vote for NSU in Home Depot’s Retool Your School 2016

Home Depot retool your school focal8-2016Home Depot’s Retool Your School project was developed to benefit the nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). A total of nine grants will be awarded this year: three $50,000 grants, three $30,000 grants and three $20,000 grants. New in this year’s program, respondents with completed applications and at least 100 votes will receive a $1,000 Home Depot Gift Card. Gift Cards are expected to be distributed on or around May 18.

Additionally, other changes to the Retool Your School program include:

  • New Cluster Structure — increases your chances of winning $50,000. All HBCUs competing for a grant will be placed into one of three clusters, based on student enrollment. The clusters are identified as follows:
  • Cluster 1: 4,000+ students
  • Cluster 2: 1,200-3,999
  • Cluster 3: less than 1,199 students

With the incorporation of clusters, participating HBCUs are now only in competition with those schools similar in size based on student enrollment.

  • New Grant Amounts — $300,000 will be awarded across 9 HBCUs! This year EACH of the three clusters will award a:
    • Tier I Grant – $50,000
    • Campus Pride Grant – $30,000*
    • Tier II Grant – $20,000
    • The Home Depot’s Retool Your School program is giving away more grant money to more schools for MORE campus improvements. Visit http://www.retoolyourschool.com for more information and to review all program rules. To cast your vote for Norfolk State University, click here.
