- Scholarship Description
Applicants for the BLK Men in Tech Trailblazers Scholarshipmust be currently enrolled as a Freshman, Sophomore, or Junior at a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) majoring in a technology-related field of study.

The BLK Men in Tech Scholars program is designed to support the community in this effort by equipping future Black leaders with the resources they need to progress their education and establish a meaningful career.
Scholarship winners will receive a $1,000 Book Scholarship, mentorship from individuals in the technology space and gain access to exciting internship and employment opportunities. Recipients will be able to expand their networking capacity by engaging with new peers and exercise their skills by planning and implementing a community service project.
