Students can apply for scholarships during the application period 8 a.m. January 5, 2016 until 2 p.m. June 5, 2016. Find out more about the Trustee supported Black History Committee Scholarship.
Our sincerest thanks
The 2016 Houston Community College Black History Scholarship Gala was an overwhelming success. This year's keynote speaker - NASA Administrator Maj. Gen. Charles F. Bolden Jr. - went above and beyond to encourage HCC students and supporters to embrace greatness in higher education and to consider NASA as a worthy career path.
The HCC Black History Committee would like to thank all sponsors for their commitment to supporting scholarships for deserving students at HCC. We could not have accomplished this goal without you.
Now in its 11th year, the HCC Black History Scholarship Gala is continuing its tradition of providing HCC student scholarships and inviting some of the most interesting, influential and noteworthy people in America to serve as keynote speakers.
Join us on Saturday, February 25, 2017 for next year's HCC Black History Scholarship Gala.
