With this latest win, ϲͼ also received what is called the Record Smasher Award, having the most wins. The university has won twelve grants totaling $440,000.00 over the past fifteen years to improve student life on campus.

Tuskegee is one of 30 Historically Black Colleges and Universities receiving grant money from Home Depot's Retool Your School grant program.

"In the spirit of Tuskegee, this grant represents more than just funds for improvement; it symbolizes the enduring legacy of excellence and community support. We are grateful for the unwavering dedication of our alumni, students, faculty, staff, and supporters who have championed Tuskegee's mission," said Burt Rowe, Tuskegee Alum and Administrator of the Tuskegee Retool Your School Program.
