They are currently offering two scholarship awards totaling $4000, Dr. Wallace Charles, and the HBCU Heritage Scholarship Award.

Over the years, HBCU has expanded its offerings in additional scholarships and awards. Also, the plan includes students receiving tuition-free access to four years, public historically black colleges and universities(HBCU’s), and minority-serving institutions if their families earn below $125,000.
The average tuition & fees of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) is $7,195 for state residents and $14,966 for out-state students, and the average acceptance rate is 68.94%. HBCU Council helps eligible learners achieve their educational dreams by delivering amazing scholarships, workshops for parents and guardians, free practice college entrance tests for students, school supplies for elementary schools, and sharing the significance of HBCUs in America.

The HBCU Council of Shiloh Baptist Church was established to raise awareness concerning Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and provide HBCU access to generations of new students. The HBCU Council of Shiloh Baptist Church is located in Washington D.C. with members and sister entities nationwide. They offer community education and access to college, scholarships, SAT and college board test preparation, as well as a host of celebratory HBCU services.
