The $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill that President Joe Biden signed into law in December earmarks millions of dollars for Baltimore-area colleges and universities. In total, the Baltimore region will see over $80 million in direct federal investments from the legislation. The money will help universities expand scientific research, train more health care workers and create more opportunities for entrepreneurs. Morgan State University earned the largest sum of money of any Baltimore institution at just under $5 million. The largest chunk of money to MSU is $2 million earmarked for Morgan State University’s Center for Equitable Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, according to a joint statement from Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen.
