Race-based scholarships at Minnesota State University Moorhead subject of new civil rights complaint

A conservative nonprofit behind dozens of civil rights complaints against race-based education policies around the country is now zeroing in on at Minnesota State University Moorhead, alleging that five of the university's scholarships are discriminatory.

The Equal Protection Project of the Legal Insurrection Foundation on Tuesday filed a civil rights complaint with the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights in Chicago, asking that it investigate Minnesota State University Moorhead and "impose whatever remedial relief is necessary to hold it accountable for that unlawful conduct."

The Rhode Island-based nonprofit was emboldened by last year's landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling that banned using race as a factor in college admissions and cited the high court's decision in its complaint.
