The Black College Football Hall of Fame on Wednesday announced the establishment of a $150,000 Black College Football Hall of Fame HBCU Scholarship Fund that will provide financial assistance for juniors and seniors affiliated with HBCU Football programs.

“The Black College Football Hall of Fame HBCU Scholarship Fund will benefit students who assist behind the scenes at HBCU football programs, including medical, equipment, video, interns and others.” said Doug Williams, a co-founder, trustee and inductee of the Black College Football Hall of Fame. “Many of these outstanding young men and women do not receive financial support.”

HBCU students will be able to apply next month via an online portal. Further details will be announced in the coming weeks to HBCU athletic directors and football coaches.  Scholarships will be awarded in honor of individual Black College Football Hall of Fame inductees.

“The Black College Football Hall of Fame HBCU Scholarship Fund was made possible because of the success of our Black College Football … The Road to Equality program,” said James “Shack” Harris, a co-founder, trustee and inductee of the Black College Football Hall of Fame. “By sharing our history, we are able to support our future.”
