Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) has launched a new advocacy campaign, #intheblack, to introduce tools and resources to support the need for knowledge about student loan repayment and overall financial literacy for historically black college and university (HBCU) students and parents, the company said.

It will serve as a resource to educate students and parents about the various student loan repayment options and provide financial aid literacy development opportunities. The goal is to get more students out of debt.

Funded by a grant from the Federal Financial Aid Advocacy Fund, administered through HCM Strategists, the funds are made possible by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which supports advocacy activities that engage new stakeholders and partners in federal policy-making for financial aid.

The Thurgood Marshall College Fund is a TMCF is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, charitable organization with 47 member schools of publicly supported historically black colleges and universities that educate 80 percent of all students attending HBCUs. TMCF connects students with top tier employment opportunities.
