Discover the Unexpected Fellows
Chevrolet is getting ready for its third year of awarding fellowships to students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). The Discover the Unexpected Fellows will receive a total of $90,000 in scholarships and awards! The six winners are selected based on a multitude of factors and an application.
The program is designed to showcase up-and-coming journalists who share positive stories about African American communities. It opens the doors to endless possibilities for those who win the fellowships.
This Year’s Fellows
Chevy has announced this year’s winners!
The Discover the Unexpected Fellows are:
- Tyvan Banks | Norfolk State University
- Diamond Durant | Morgan State University
- Daja Henry | Howard University
- Denver Lark | North Carolina A&T State University
- Natrawn Maxwell | Claflin University
- Ila Wilborn | Florida A&M University
What Do They Win?
Each student will receive a $10,000 scholarship and a $5,000 stipend! This is Chevy’s way to help offset the cost of college, including room and board. The winning fellows will also take part in an eight-week internship over the summer. During this time they will be working with NNPA editors.
“In 2016 Chevrolet launched the DTU fellowship at Howard University and last year added Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, and Spelman College,” says Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “This year we want to give every HBCU student with a strong voice the opportunity to report the inspiring stories from around the U.S. as they Find New Roads behind the wheel of the 2018 Equinox.”
Since the program started in 2016, Chevy has awarded more than $300,000 to fellows!
These awards only go to the best and brightest, this includes the most promising journalism, communications, mass media, or visual arts majors at HBCUs.
Congratulations to the outstanding students from us here at Ozark Chevrolet! Then visit or call us today and experience the 2018 Chevy Equinox for yourself!
