Best Buy Scholars


04 Mar: Best Buy creates scholarship fund for HBCU students

To support students and build a diverse talent pipeline across the country, Best Buy has committed to provide $44 million to expand college prep and career opportunities for Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) students.

As part of those efforts, we partnered with the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) to launch a scholarship fund that helps reduce financial barriers for Black students attending historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and prepares them for the tech-reliant jobs of the future.


16 Jan: Introducing the Inaugural Class of Best Buy Scholars

Every young person deserves an opportunity to pursue their dreams, but not everyone gets the same access to resources they need.

That’s why we created the Best Buy Scholars program, which provides college scholarships for diverse students.

Together with the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) and University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management, we are aiming to make a college degree more accessible for students, including those who were active participants at a Best Buy Teen Tech Center.

We are excited to welcome the first six scholars, each of whom will receive an internship and mentorship along with their scholarship.
