National College Resources Foundation (NCRF) and HBCU Buzz are pleased to announce a major partnership. After both founders, Luke Lawal of HBCU Buzz and Theresa Price of NCRF discussed new and fresh ideas, they were more than eager to initiate a partnership.
HBCU Buzz, which is dedicated to promoting pride and unity within all HBCU communities in order to enhance the black college experience, along with NCRF, whose mission is to curtail the high school dropout rate and increase degree and/or certificate enrollment among underserved and underrepresented youth will make for a mutually beneficial partnership. The HBCU Buzz and NCRF are uniting to advocate for the significance of HBCUs by making a difference through educational and career focused opportunities.
The NCRF provides minority, black and hispanic, students with the tools and resources to make it into the classroom to later succeed outside of the classroom. It was established to connect minorities to college and career opportunities. The NCRF has helped over 400,000 students get in to college and provided over $5600,000 in scholarships, as wel
l have helped students secure over 100 million in scholarships and grants.
“I am excited to partner with HBCU Buzz to spread HBCU love, and share information with the world about the positive HBCU experience. This is really going to enhance our Black College Expos and the importance of HBCUs” Price said.
The Buzz, founded in 2011, is the leading source for HBCU news for all historically black colleges and universities providing trends and breaking news about all HBCUs by strategically using references from schools, organizations and media outlets.
“After speaking with Theresa and understanding her passion for uplifting minorities, I am more than excited to work with the NCRF,” Lawal said. “We share the same ideas, same missions, and same goals and that’s why this is going to be an amazing partnership.”
