Big Sean's "Moguls in the Making" HBCU Competition

Big Sean, founder of Moguls in the Making HBCU Competition

Big Sean, a multi-platinum selling rapper, has partnered with a division of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) called the Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) Program. The goal is to produce scholarships via his non-profit organization, the Sean Anderson Foundation and Ally Financial, to current HBCU students that want to become entrepreneurs.
The competition is called "Moguls in the Making," and they are looking for the best young minds, who think critically, artistically, and are passionate about solving problems. TMCF will select ten (10) publicly-supported HBCUs to join in the competition. Of the ten (10) schools selected to participate, five (5) students from each school will select a team to represent their institution.

This 2 1/2-day business competition will be both challenging and rewarding! Applicants will be tasked with developing solutions to economic problems facing various industries, and then pitch their ideas to a panel of expert judges comprised of small business owners, executives, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and other investors.

In past years, awardees of our Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programs have walked away with an opportunity to attend Apple’s WWDC conference,  Macbooks, leadership Exchange Study Abroad Scholarship, and iPads to name a few.

Applicants must be:

* Must be enrolled full-time in an accredited TMCF member-school
* Must be in good academic standing with no disciplinary infractions
* Must be willing to grow and learn in a collaborative environment
*Must exhibit the ability to work well on a team
*Must be interested in learning how to develop or expand an entrepreneurial mindset

The deadline to apply is usually in FEBRUARY, and the award amount VARIES.
