The Dallas Mavericks, in partnership with the United Negro College Fund(UNCF), announced in a Wednesday release the addition of five scholarships for HBCU students to their Mavs College Scholarship program.
Applications are open now through Aug. 31.
The Mavs College Scholarship was launched last year, selecting five North Texas recipients to receive a four-year scholarship and mentoring experience.
In 2022, the scholarship adds five new recipients, totaling 10 students overall with each receiving a one-year scholarship.
The Mavericks will select five North Texas students in need of financial assistance that are attending or planning to attend full-time an accredited HBCU.
The commitment from the Mavericks goes beyond a one-time scholarship, the team said. Scholarship recipients will receive ongoing mentoring from Mavs staff as well as opportunities for Mavs summer jobs, internships and other work.
