In addition to addressing the financial needs of Legends Scholars, a comprehensive scholars program will assist Legends Scholars in the areas of career preparation and development, job placement and mentoring both during and after their undergraduate years. Specifically, through the Legends Scholars program, Legends Scholars will receive:

“We are thrilled to present our third annual Legends HBCU Scholarship program and continue our tradition of providing support for HBCU institutions and amplifying the crucial role they play in our communities,” said Scott Rochelle, NBRPA President & CEO. “We are proud and honored to help make sure these extraordinary college students have access to the necessary, substantial and multifaceted resources offered through our Legends Scholars program that will serve them throughout their collegiate careers and beyond.”
Sports Techie, for the past several months I’ve been driving for Lyft again as I did pre-pandemic and more than several of my riders have been HBCU students and alumni. These HBCU affiliated people have been enjoyable to get to know. Some have played varsity sports for their respective colleges, however, it is the education and connections made both during their time in school and those made after graduating that I sense each one values immensely.
Spread the good word about the Legends HBCU Scholarship program as I have done since the February 14, 2023 launch. Read more about the 2022 Legends HBCU recipients and 2021 Legends HBCU scholarship winners.
Remember, current undergraduate students attending a HBCU are eligible to apply with a 11:59pm CST, Wednesday, March 22, 2023, deadline.
May you or someone you knows scholarship fortune change with this free to apply NBRPA program.
