Strada Scholars

Strada Scholars are changemakers who aim to make significant contributions on campus, within the community, and in their future careers.


Strada Scholars are part of a nationwide cohort of select students who will receive:

Scholarship

A renewable annual scholarship.

Internship Support

Financial support to defray the costs of participating in work-based learning experiences.

Leadership and Networking

Participation in a nationwide cohort and convenings to build social capital through peer and professional networking and mentoring.

Graduate School and Career Readiness

Connections to various graduate school and career options to increase postgraduate success.

The Strada HBCU Initiative’s first offering, Strada Scholars, is available to all HBCUs. It launches in the 2021-22 academic year with more than two dozen inaugural institutions that select up to three students each to participate in the leadership development experience. HBCU chancellors and presidents select Strada Scholars from the pool of students currently participating in honors-based campus programs. Instead of creating new programs to implement Strada Scholars on campus, Strada works to incorporate its work into the existing institutional structure, amplifying the work an HBCU already is doing.
