Important Opportunity for Applicants to HBCUs!

Thanks to the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo and the Communities of Giving Legacy Initiative, all Buffalo Public School seniors can use the Common Black College Application for FREE! The Common Black Application allows students to apply to over 50 Historically Black Colleges and Universities at once. Use the code “BPSCH2019” and the application fee is waived! Benedict College, Bennett College and Paul Quinn College are included on the Common Black Application and are all in the Say Yes to Education Private College Compact, meaning that eligible Buffalo students who enroll at those colleges will receive free tuition coverage! In addition, eligible Buffalo students can also receive free tuition coverage at a 4th HBCU, Simmons College of Kentucky as they are also a member of the Private College Compact!
Visit to access the application and apply to the HBCUs of your choice, today! Please share this with Buffalo Public School seniors interested in attending an HBCU for college!
