Nominations Open: 2017 HBCU Top 30 Under 30

Do you know a student at a historically black college or university (HBCU) who exemplifies greatness, inspires their community, or represents their school beautifully?

For over two centuries, HBCUs have served as the cultivating grounds for distinguished minority masterminds. These 107 historic fertile grounds spread around the country, mainly in the eastern and southern regions, have produced some of the countries finest and most celebrated African-American men and women in the United States and in the entire world.

In addition to delivering a quality education, HBCUs instill cultural awareness and ignite conscious, community-serving citizens. Each year, these institutions of higher learning graduate more than 400,000 students but a group of dynamic, selfless, and superior scholars rise above the ranks of their colleagues. We are happy to announce we are now accepting submissions for HBCU Top 30 Under 30 class of 2017. Previous 2016 HBCU 30 under 30 classes include doctors, religious leaders, educators, professional athletes, lawyers, musicians, bankers, writers, scientists, humanitarians, engineers, actors/actresses, civil rights leaders, and even olympians. View the classes here.
The deadline for all submissions is July 14, 2017.
