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.
The application deadline is Feb 1, 2023. Winners will be announced on Mar 1, 2023.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 1, 2023. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
