The Propel Center Is Awarding 100 HBCU Students $10,000 Scholarships. Here’s How To Apply.

Do you know of an HBCU student who needs a $10,000 scholarship?

The Propel Center has announced the launch of its Propel Student Impact Scholarships, with support from Apple and Southern Company.

The new scholarship program, directed at HBCU students who are interested in pursuing careers in entrepreneurship, arts & entertainment, agri-tech, social justice and health, is open to rising sophomores, juniors, seniors as well as graduate students.

For the scholarship the Propel Center will donate a total of 100 $10,000 scholarship awards to the winners, an investment that the Propel Center believes will help to transform the nation’s talent pipeline and workforce. The Student Impact Scholarship winners will also have the unique opportunity to participate in work-based learning opportunities with Propel Center’s corporate partners.

To apply for the 2022 Propel Student Impact Scholarships, students must complete an online application and may also submit a self-created video or infographic describing how their interest in entrepreneurship, the arts & entertainment, agri-tech, social justice or health aligns with the Propel Center’s mission.
