About The National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame

The National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame Foundation, Inc. (Hall of Fame) is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the growth and development of HBCUs through scholarships, internships, training and technical assistance, alumni recognition, and programs to encourage humanitarian involvement. Our aim is to advance the reality that HBCUs are valuable treasures and critical resources that help transform the seeds of potentiality into the fruits of possibility.

Additionally, the Hall of Fame, through its National Scholarship Service, seeks to ensure that high school students are exposed to colleges and universities through college fairs, which facilitate the exchange of information and one-on-one interview sessions between high school students and college representatives. Through this effort thousands of students interact with more than 500 colleges and universities on an annual basis.
