Texas Southern University engineering major named Apple HBCU Scholar (495 hits)

Samuel Kanu, Electrical/Computer Engineering and Mathematics major, has been selected to join the Apple HBCU Scholars program. Kanu was one of 35 students named from 16 HBCUs. Apple hosted a five-day immersive experience at its headquarters in Cupertino, California, where students learned more about the company’s culture and community.

Kanu, a junior, will have the opportunity in May to gain hands-on experience through a paid internship at Apple and will receive a scholarship to complete his final year at TSU. He is president of TSU’s National Society of Black Engineers student chapter and a TSU Calculus Bowl champion.

This is the second year of an initiative that Apple launched in partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund to provide opportunities in the technology industry for students and enhance engagement with faculty on HBCU campuses.
