HBCU Week has come to Wilmington. It’s a time all about historically Black colleges and universities.

So it seems like a good time to share some news about a program for HBCU students who are actively making a difference in their communities and campuses. If you’re a student at an HBCU like Delaware State University or know someone who is, this is a scholarship and networking opportunity.

AT&T’s Rising Future Makers Showcase is selecting 25 students from HBCUs across the country through its Dream in Black platform. The selected students will gain access to valuable connections, networks, prospects, a $5,000 scholarship, a 5G-enabled Tablet with one year of complimentary AT&T service and a Rising Future Maker letter jacket.

As part of the initiative, AT&T is also donating laptops to high school students.

Applicants can submit 60-second videos highlighting their impact on their community, or they can submit a short written application. The deadline is Nov. 6.
