Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bloomberg will address the graduating class of 2021 in a private ceremony for the College of Medicine graduates only.

“In September, Michael Bloomberg and Bloomberg Philanthropies embraced our medical students and invested into their future professional aspirations with a generous $31.7 million grant to help pay down their debt,” said Howard President Dr. Wayne A . I. Frederick. “As a result, our students will graduate with a financial burden lifted off their shoulders that I know will change the trajectory of their lives. We’re honored to have Mr. Bloomberg spend this time with us and meet the recipients of the foundation’s generosity.”
