HBCUs with track and field programs - what are my options?

I’m a junior in high school and looking for colleges with solid track and field programs. I'm especially interested in attending an HBCU. Could anyone drop some names of HBCUs that have such programs and might offer athletic scholarships? I want to make sure I'm considering all my possibilities. Thanks!

I'm glad to hear that you're exploring your options with HBCUs that offer track and field programs. Historically Black Colleges and Universities have a rich tradition of nurturing talent in various fields, including athletics. Many HBCUs offer robust track and field programs and sometimes provide athletic scholarships to support their student-athletes.

To start, look at schools like Howard University, North Carolina A&T State University, and Florida A&M University, as they have competitive track and field teams. You should also consider Hampton University and Southern University and A&M College, which have solid reputations for their track programs.

As for scholarships, these often depend on your athletic abilities and the school's available funds. I recommend reaching out to the coaches or the athletic departments of these institutions to inquire about scholarships and to find out about their recruitment process.

Finally, I suggest compiling a list of your athletic achievements and a highlight reel to share with coaches if applicable. It’s great to see you're proactive about this — best of luck with your search and future applications!
