(Augusta, GA) – Paine College urges its faculty, staff, student, alumni, and friends of the College to take part in the Quotes for Education program, a partnership between the Tom Joyner Foundation and Allstate Insurance. This initiative is in its third year and encourages supporters to obtain quotes and vote for their favorite HBCU in an effort for the institution to receive funds for scholarships.

There are two ways Paine College can be a part of this 2013 partnership for possible scholarship funds for your students.  Your alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends are encouraged to do both:

•    Vote for your favorite HBCU. The winning school will receive $50,000 for scholarships.
•    Get a quote from an Allstate Agent.  $10.00 for every quote will go to the Tom Joyner Foundation; up to a total of $150,000.00 for scholarships.

Initiatives like the Quotes for Education partnership assist students at HBCU who have financial obstacles achieve their aspirations to become a college graduate and enter the work force. To get your quote and vote for Paine College’s chance to win scholarship funds, visit
