SPC Partners with SA Spurs to Provide Career Development Opportunities to HBCU Students
February 16, 2022
St. Philip’s College has partnered with the San Antonio Spurs in the inaugural National Basketball Association (NBA) Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Fellowship Program. This opportunity is an extension of the league’s ongoing commitment to HBCUs to support the growth of the next generation of leaders and spur an increase of diverse talent representation across NBA league offices and teams.
The NBA HBCU Fellowship Program, led by the NBA Foundation, in collaboration with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, will provide career development opportunities to students with the league for 10 weeks this summer. NBA teams, including the San Antonio Spurs, will select six interns to participate in the paid fellowship. In total, over 50 fellows nationwide will be selected to work in a wide variety of departments, including ticket sales, corporate partnerships, legal, social responsibility, marketing, and more.
Students will also participate in enriching opportunities, including a two-day orientation at the NBA league office in New York City in June 2022, workshops, and team-building activities. To qualify, students must be enrolled full-time and graduate between December 2022 and May 2024.
