  • Our mission is three-fold:
  • Partner with our member-schools to increase access, retention and graduation rates of students
  • Identify and prepare students attending member-schools who have significant leadership potential
  • Create a pipeline for employers to highly qualified member-school students and alumni
  • Our Vision - Changing the World … One Leader at a Time


Since its inception in 1987, Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) has provided scholarships to qualified students attending its member-schools. TMCF scholarships have provided support to help fund an education at one of our nation’s public Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). TMCF provides merit-based scholarships to students seeking financial assistance to complete their education. TMCF scholarship recipients are awarded annually to students meeting the TMCF eligibility criteria. Awards are made each semester and are based on a verification process designed to ensure that academic expectations are being met and that there is an unmet financial need. All classifications of students are invited to apply for a TMCF scholarship. For more information on scholarships, go to:


TMCF’s Career Center is a most valuable resource for member-school students and alumni who seek jobs or internships. Once you register and post your resume in our database using the TMCF Resume Template you will be able to connect with employers from a variety of sectors. As employers search for diverse talent they will have an opportunity to select the best candidate from the TMCF network. For more information on the Career Center, go to:
