HBCU Women, Glamour Magazine Wants You To Be Part Of Its College Women Of The Year Honors

Are you a woman attending a Historically Black College or University? If so, you can be nominated for the honor, which comes with a list of excellent benefits.

Glamour magazine is reaching out to talented women students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities as part of their 60-year tradition of honoring them for their contributions in various professional fields ranging from medicine to technology to the arts, business, media and service.

“As part of our continuing work to honor all kinds of remarkable young women, in 2022 we're turning the spotlight to students enrolled at historically Black colleges and universities across America,” said Glamour in its announcement. “And now it’s your turn. Glamour wants to hear from the next generation of thinkers and leaders because—as we all know—diversity within the education system makes us more productive as a society. And under the crushing weight of the COVID-19 pandemic, HBCUs are ​​among the estimated half of U.S. colleges and universities facing financial crises, including declines in federal funding and rising college tuitions, so we hope our focus on the amazing achievers these institutions produce will encourage and strengthen them and their students.”

As part of their efforts to highlight diversity, women at HBCUs are invited to apply to be honored as a College Woman of the Year – HBCU Edition. Selected honorees will:

• Be spotlighted in Glamour.

• Have the opportunity to be paired with a high-profile mentor.
