The Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) recently announced a very exciting partnership with Hennessy geared towards our Historically Black College and University (HBCU) graduate students and we are asking for your assistance in spreading the word.
This is a unique and groundbreaking initiative designed to identify, cultivate, and launch African American graduate students into corporate leadership roles. Made possible by a $10 million donation, TMCF and Hennessy have embarked on a major effort to celebrate and champion the next generation of African American leaders. Following a thorough application process, the Hennessy Fellows Program (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Zxdxo8oEWQ&feature=youtu.be) will select 10 high-achieving, high-potential graduate students per year and offer them a one-of-a-kind professional development opportunity.
The application for the inaugural cohort of Hennessy Fellows is NOW OPEN. It is my hope that you can share this information with your best and brightest students and encourage them to apply. Recipients will be awarded financial assistance as well as unprecedented corporate and professional development experiences that will position them for success in Corporate America
The program is open to students enrolled in their first year of an accredited HBCU MBA program and offers the following:
● 1:1 executive coaching
● Scholarship up to $20,000 per academic year
● $10,000 annual stipend for other educational expenses
● Opportunity to compete for a community-related project grant up to $10,000
● Access to online training forums, boot camps, networking events, and professional development experiences
For more information about the program, please visit tmcf.org/HFP. I have attached a flyer to this email that you can use to share. Remember this program is just for first-year HBCU graduate students in an MBA program, with a 3.25 minimum GPA. Please do not share this with undergraduate students or anyone under the age of 21.
The deadline for students to apply is May 10th. I am hoping you can assist with this opportunity to help ensure the programís success. Thank you in advance for your continued support as we work to prove that HBCUs are critical to building a broader, more inclusive talent base for corporate America.
Dollar Amount: $20,000
