Thurgood Marshall College Fund Partners With Apple To Build Pipeline to “HBCU Techies”

Apple-HBCU-Scholars-ProgramThe Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) has long been a supporter of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s). So when we heard about their latest partnership we weren’t surprised.

TMCF has partnered with Apple on the first-of-its-kind HBCU Initiative to build a pipeline of diverse tech talent from  HBCUs.  Because of Apple’s bold leadership announcement last year, TMCF was able to work with Apple‘s internal team to identify 33 Apple Scholars from public and private HBCUs, who are currently interning at Apple Headquarters in Cupertino.

TMCF said what we all know, that tech talent exists on HBCU campuses. TMCF is doing their part to help build the pipeline from Apple to our HBCU ‘Techies.”
