Top HBCU Scholarships 2022-2023

Historically, access to higher education has not always been equal. Many groups, including African American and Black students, have been left out of educational opportunities.

Because of this, many colleges and scholarships aim to support African American students as they pay for college. These scholarships include specific scholarships for African American women, full ride scholarships, and scholarships generally for students from minority backgrounds.

HBCUs have historically been extremely important in the education of Black students. For many years, they were the only universities that admitted Black students. Fortunately, this is no longer true. However, they continue to provide unique benefits for Black students across the country.

There are billions of dollars in HBCU scholarships, grants, and internships that are available for students wishing to attend college.

HBCU Scholarships Applying Tips:

  • Consider Historically Black Colleges and Universities (also known as HBCUs) in your colleges search! HBCUs include top schools like Howard, Spelman, and Morehouse have historically served African American students and have many merit scholarships for black women and men.
  • In addition to merit scholarships, you should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (or FAFSA) to qualify for need-based financial aid.
  • Check out our scholarship search tool to stay up-to-date on current scholarship opportunities custom-matched to your demographics, interests, and major.
  • Make sure to put a lot of work into your scholarship essays. This includes working on writing about yourself, and learning to write for word limits. Some common word limits for scholarship essays are 250 and 500 words.

FAQs:

Are there scholarships specifically for Black women?

The National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women’s Clubs offers several scholarships specifically for Black women.

Do I qualify for scholarships for Black students if I am multiracial?

Yes, you do! Though they may exist, we have never seen a scholarship that requires 100% Black heritage. And you can apply to scholarship opportunities meant for any race or heritage you identify with. So, if you are Black and Hispanic, you can apply to scholarships targeted towards either community.

What are the advantages of HBCUs?

Though every student’s needs are different, HBCUs can be a great option for some Black students. Studies have shown higher levels of engagement and higher graduation rates among Black students at HBCUs. Additionally, they often have more institutional aid set aside for Black students.
