Student loan debt and managing repayment after graduation is a major burden for many new college graduates and professionals already in their careers. It is a topic of national concern and impacts career choices, college completion rates, family economic health and America’s global competitiveness. In an effort to bring more awareness to the issue and to help create solutions, the Thurgood Marshall College Fund has created and launched the #intheblack campaign.
The goal of the #intheblack campaign is to raise awareness about student loan repayment options. The campaign particularly targets students attending HBCUs and/or come from under-resourced backgrounds, especially soon to be college graduates and young professionals. The aim is to help soon-to-be college graduates and young professionals do two things: 1) understand the various student loan repayment options available, and 2) select the best repayment option to quickly get out of debt and #intheblack.
TMCF wants to see more HBCU graduates get #intheblack as it relates to their financial futures. For many students, a high student loan bill is a monthly reality. We hope HBCU students and parents use this website as a resource to learn more about student loan repayment options.
