Take a look at how the University of Massachusetts is providing fellowships for graduate students from “historically underrepresented groups”… https://www.gazettenet.com/UMass-Amherst-creates-STEM-fellowship-for-underrepresented-groups-19453320

I think this is great that a university is proactively trying to encourage diversity into STEM subjects, however, there needs to be careful considerations put into place to no be indirectly “offensive” and drive a wedge between the students who achieved the same thing but without the fellowship.
