HBCU First

About HBCU First

HBCU First is a student-led nonprofit with a mission to increase college success and career access for Black youth.

We believe Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) should be the first choice of college-bound Black youth and diverse-talent-seeking organizations.

As the nation's leading HBCU internship program, we help Black youth navigate the college-to-career journey and bridge the gap between learning and doing.
