Black History Committee Scholarship

Each year the Black History Committee raises funds to support scholarships for African-American or students of African heritage at HCC. Recipients receive a $1,000 scholarship to help cover the cost of tuition and books.  Students can apply for scholarships during the application period 8 a.m. January 5, 2015 until 2 p.m. June 5, 2015.   Find out more about the Trustee supported Black History Committee Scholarship.

Table purchasing information for HCC staff members and internal groups

If you are an HCC college, department or student organization seeking to purchase a table to the 2015 scholarship gala, please know that your reservation and purchase will be classified as "tentative" until February 13th.

Because internal tables are being offered "at cost," the HCC Black History Committee wants to allow external organizations and sponsors every opportunity to secure gala tables at their regular price of $2,500. The support of external sponsors is a crucial aspect of the scholarship gala. It helps increase scholarship funds available to our deserving HCC students.

We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter. After 5 p.m., Friday, February 13th, any remaining gala tables will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Best regards,

The HCC Black History Committee
