Six students from Howard University have been selected into the Apple HBCU Scholars program. This is the second year of the initiative Apple launched in partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund to provide opportunities in the tech industry for students and enhance engagement with faculty on HBCU campuses. During the week of February 13th, Apple hosted 35 students from 16 HBCUs for a 5-day immersive experience at its headquarters in Cupertino, California where they learned more about the company’s culture, ecosystem and community. In May, they will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience through a paid internship. Upon returning to school for their final year, students will receive scholarship funding to complete their education, and continue their experience with Apple and TMCF as Ambassadors to the program. Please join us in recognizing these students on this great accomplishment:
