Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) offer a unique environment for higher education that often comes with a personal touch. 

HBCUs allow many students to thrive who may have otherwise been underserved or overlooked in the world of academia. Currently, there are just over 100 HBCUs around the country, with these few schools alone accounting for nearly 20% of Black graduates.

This scholarship aims to support students who are preparing to transition to college so they have the necessary resources to pursue their degrees at HBCUs.

Any high school senior who has at least a 3.0 GPA and plans to attend an HBCU may apply for this scholarship. One winner will be chosen from applicants majoring in communications or a media-related field, while the other award is open to all majors.

To apply, submit a short video telling us why you chose to go to an HBCU.
