Leadership Institute


"Where You Enter as a Student and Leave as a Professional"

The award-winning Leadership Institute is a national program intended to develop students’ leadership skills, create a community of scholars, provide companies access to a talented and diverse student population, and help students make connections that lead to careers.

This power-packed four-day conference prepares carefully selected students from the 47 publicly-supported Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to compete in today’s very competitive global workforce. The conference culminates with a recruitment fair where Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, and graduate program representatives offer jobs, internships, and continuing education opportunities.

The 2019 Leadership Institute will take place October 16-20, 2019 in Washington, DC. To begin your online application, create a TMCF Account. Once you sign up and create a TMCF Account, you can complete the 2019 Leadership Institute application.

You are encouraged to apply and complete your application as soon as possible, because TMCF recruiters are currently traveling to campuses and only students with completed applications will be interviewed.
