Up to $75,000 in scholarships, university and community grants will be awarded for the first-place student team and its project. The new program, conducted in partnership with the “Tom Joyner” and “Rickey Smiley Morning Shows,” encourages HBCU students to design community projects that address pressing local needs.
The challenge is a request for proposals addressing the theme of “Building Sustainable Communities.” The Proposal should take an innovative, fresh approach in defining what building a sustainable community means to one’s local community. The Proposal should not be restricted specifically to environmental issues; rather, “sustainable community” refers to all elements of a healthy, livable community which can thrive in a global economy encompassing a wide range of issues, including education, safety and mobility.
“We are thrilled to be able to continue in our efforts to support students attending HBCUs with the launch of this program,” said Shawn Thompson, manager, Ford Multicultural Marketing. “This program will allow students to make a difference in their education, schools and ultimately their communities.”
