CDW Launches Career Pathway and Digital Equity Partnership with HBCUs

In February 2022, we announced the launch of the CDW Legacy Excellence Program™, a partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and four Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). This program focuses on creating a pathway for diverse students toward careers and leadership in the technology industry, including scholarships, internships and job opportunities with CDW. It will also address digital equity in schools and communities by closing the digital divide. 

The participating schools are Alabama A&M University, Florida A&M University, North Carolina A&T State University, and Southern University and A&M College. 

Along with investment and participation from CDW partners including Lenovo, CDW’s Legacy Excellence Program will deliver support in four key areas:

  • Technology investments in the form of infrastructure and programmatic solutions for the four participating HBCUs
  • A leadership fellowship opportunity for 16 full-time students – providing them with a paid tuition scholarship, housing and textbook stipend, paid 10-week internships with CDW, and an opportunity to interview for full-time employment with CDW upon graduation
  • A scholarship program for an additional 20 full-time students attending any publicly funded HBCU, and opportunities to interview with CDW for a 10-week internship and for full-time employment upon graduation
  • The formation of an HBCU-dedicated vertical sales team at CDW to support the unique needs of all HBCUs
