Engaging Generations of HBCU Students

In 1989, Honda Campus All-Star Challenge (HCASC) was established to showcase the academic excellence of HBCU students. Honda established the program to support HBCUs because of their unique and critical role in higher education, helping millions of students achieve their dreams. That aligns with Honda's guiding philosophy, "The Power of Dreams."

Over 125,000 students have participated. HCASC is a serious competition and much more: players widen their scope of knowledge, learn teamwork, sportsmanship, travel and represent their schools, become friends with school officials, including presidents, bond with their fellow competitors and develop relationships that make them, as our motto says, “Friends for Life.” These friends form a vast network of support during their school days and beyond.

More than $8.5 million in grants from Honda to the HBCUs have provided support for scholarships, facilities upgrades and other investments to improve the student experience.  

HCASC alumni span the globe. Their career paths are varied: they are doctors, teachers, lawyers, community builders, scientists, professors, architects, researchers, writers, journalists, military and government officials, business leaders, entrepreneurs, artists, engineers, economists, musicians and more. They share an enthusiasm for learning and have put their education to good use.
