Oakwood University is one of three Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) that won a $25,000 Campus Pride Grant in The Home Depot’s 2014 Retool Your School Campus Improvement Grant Program. 
An Oakwood spokesman said the university will use the grant to re-seed the softball and soccer fields and install sprinkler systems.

According to the results of the program, which is sponsored by the nation’s largest home improvement retailer, Oakwood was selected because of a combination of social media participation and the voting score.

In 2013, Oakwood won the Tier 1 grant of $50,000, for the construction of an outdoor pavilion.
