The White House Initiative on Educational Equity, Excellence and Economic Development through Historically Black Colleges and Universities (Initiative) is excited to announce the HBCU Scholar Recognition Program, a student recognition program designed to honor current HBCU students for their excellence, i.e., successfully preparing to compete for top opportunities that improve standards of living in their communities.

The HBCU Scholar Recognition Program will help form the next generation of leaders who exhibit and champion HBCU excellence. The Initiative will select HBCU Scholars for their:

  • Academic Achievement: established classroom performance.
  • Civic and Campus Engagement: proven leadership to make a positive difference at their institutions and in their communities; and     
  • Entrepreneurial Ethos: demonstrated character to pursue new opportunities, despite limited resources. 

The nomination period is open now until, March 31, 2023.

We are looking for the best and brightest HBCU student leaders to participate in this prestigious program!

This highly competitive recognition program is open to current HBCU students of all majors and classifications. Students accepted into the program will work with the Initiative for one academic school year and be immersed in an intensive experience working closely with one another and Initiative partners from wide range of disciplines.
