Black College Students Have Opportunity to Win $60K in HBCU Hackathon


The founders of HBCU Connect have partnered with ServiceNow, a multi-billion-dollar software company known for its cloud computing platform, to launch a 6-week, part-time Virtual Learning Experience + Hackathon. The opportunity is for current Black and Latinx students and recent graduates (all majors, and up to 2 years post-graduation).


The one-week, team-based hackathon will challenge students to solve a real-world problem that focuses on global issues like Healthcare, Education, Digital Literacy, and more. Participants will have the chance to compete for a chance to win $40,000 as the first-place winner and $20,000 as the runner-up.


As the largest HBCU Hackathon competition ever, it will be an excellent opportunity for them to network, boost their resume, learn an in-demand skill set, and compete for cash prize awards.

How to sign up

Two steps are involved. First, all who are interested are required to register to attend an online kickoff event and info session.

During this info session, which will be hosted by ServiceNow and HBCU Connect, attendees will learn the complete details of the Hackathon and can get all their questions answered. During the session, they will also be able to sign up for the Hackathon live during the event!

The event will be held online via Zoom on Tuesday, January 11th, 2022 at 3pm PST/ 6pm EST.
