The Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) offers a variety of programs, networking, and recruitment opportunities, conferences and professional development for students. TMCF offers four types of unique merit and need-based scholarships to address the financial needs of students attending TMCF-member schools.

Occasionally, TMCF may offer scholarships to students not attending one of the member schools. Most scholarships are one year, non-renewable and the average award is $3,100. Howard University is a member school and students are eligible to apply. Learn more about the TMCF at: https://www.tmcf.org/.
Forgiveness, cancellation, or discharge of your loan means that you are no longer required to repay some or all of your loan. What is the difference? Forgiveness or cancellation is when you are no longer required to make payments on you loans due to your job. A discharge is when you are no longer required to make payments on your loans due to other circumstances, such as total and permanent disability or the closure of the school where you received your loans.
