The Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) and McDonald’s are proud to offer financial assistance to outstanding students attending one of the 47 publicly-supported Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Predominantly Black Institutions (PBIs) within the TMCF member-school network.
Six scholars will be selected to receive a merit scholarship for the upcoming academic year, which can be applied to verifiable costs associated with average tuition and usual fees.

Applicants must be 18 years old or older, be enrolled as a full-time student at one of TMCF’s 47 member-schools, and be enrolled as an undergraduate student or a graduate student for the upcoming school year.

The program is open to all majors, but applicants must demonstrate leadership ability through a variety of measures, and demonstrate a strong community service record. They also must be U.S. Citizens or legal permanent residents with a valid permanent resident card or passport stamped I-551.

Applicants must also submit a resume and their most recent college transcript (unofficial or official).

A one-minute YouTube video is also required, along with answers to several short essay questions.

The deadline for this scholarship program is usually in MAY, and the award amount is usually $10,000.
