The Boeing Company
In 2018, Boeing made a $6 million investment to support the Thurgood Marshall College Fund. The five-year strategic investment provides talented, innovative and deserving HBCU students with scholarships, internships, immersive boot-camp experiences at Boeing sites across the United States, and on-campus engagements for students, faculty, and administrators.
Additionally, TMCF, in partnership with The Boeing Company, established the 2020-2021 Boeing | TMCF Scholar Program. This program provides an unparalleled career opportunity and scholarship for outstanding students attending Boeing HBCU partner schools. The program also provides students with complete college to career support- opening the door to a full-time career with Boeing across all business units. The highly competitive program targets students for opportunities in: engineering, IT and data analytics, finance, accounting, supply chain management, human resources, environmental health and safety, and facilities management.
Boeing also provides support for the Boeing HBCU Immersion program – a highly competitive program that brings together the brightest freshmen and sophomores from HBCU partner schools. Scholars attend a multi-day, all-inclusive introduction program at Boeing that highlights future career opportunities in Business, Information Technology, and Engineering. In addition, Boeing sponsors a three-day virtual immersion day to learn more about Boeing. In 2021, the virtual program included a case competition and site tours.
The Boeing | TMCF HBCU Investment is an initiative to build capacity within STEM and business-related functions at its partner HBCUs. To reach this goal, TMCF awards up to $50,000 in capacity-building grants to each of its eight priority HBCUs yearly for projects that build a pipeline of talented students pursuing and persisting in STEM and business fields through Boeing-aligned research and professional development.
