FedEx Air & Ground Supports HBCUs

FedEx Air & Ground Supports HBCUs

For 19 years, FedEx has recognized the top NFL quarterbacks and running backs during the season through the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Year Awards. Each week of the 18-week regular season, three (3) quarterbacks and three (3) running backs will be nominated for the FedEx Air & Ground Players of the Week Awards, based on their performance. Weekly winners will be selected by fans, who have the chance to vote for the top quarterback and running back each week.

During the 2021-22 NFL regular season, FedEx will work with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF), the largest organization exclusively representing the Black College community, to make weekly donations of $2,000 in the name of the winning quarterback and running back ($4,000 total) to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the country. Over the course of the entire season, select HBCUs will receive grants totaling more than $100,000 to support needs-based scholarships through the 2022-2023 school year.
