A scholarship just for HBCU seniors

You’re going to do great things. Make sure graduating is one of them.

The Thurgood Marshall College Fund and Wells Fargo are proud to announce the HBCU College Completion Scholarship — offering a total of $1,000,000 in funds.

Who should apply?

The scholarship is for seniors who have demonstrated financial need and who are also attending a historically Black college or university (HBCU). Each scholarship recipient may be awarded up to $5,000 (depending on their demonstrated financial need) for education costs.

Scholarship applications open online Nov. 9, 2021, and will be accepted through Jan. 3, 2022.

To be eligible you must:
