Howard University is in the midst of the WORST CRISIS in the history of the University. Last night a whistleblower offered evidence that suggests that senior Howard officials may have stolen millions of Dollars in financial aid money at the prestigious university.
The records were obtained by a Howard University financial aid administrator and how that Howard University officials received nearly $1 Million in financial aid funds between 2013 and 2017 in what is being labeled an "office-wide scandal".
Here's what is being reported on Medium:
The embezzlement was allegedly first discovered by a student employee, Chase*, who noticed that the office was dispersing refund checks nearing $100,000 in a single aid year. Federal law and financial aid policies limit the amount students can receive to the cost of attendance budget. In 2017–2018, this amount was just $43,501 according to Howard University’s website.
“I noticed irregularities in the type and amount of grants that were being awarded. And then I noticed that all of these grants were being awarded to my colleagues,” Chase said.
Phony grants were allegedly created and awarded to financial aid employees who were also registered for University courses. In some cases, these employees qualified for tuition remission and therefore weren’t charged tuition for their classes. Despite this, they still received large grants and scholarships that exceeded amounts generally awarded to normal students. These grants almost always exceeded legally allowed amounts.
In light of this controversy, and other recent controversy's at Howard University, students are calling on the President - Wayne Frederick - to resign.
