Learn, laugh and thrive
Honda supports a variety of programs aimed at advancing education and creating experiences of discovery that help all young people – regardless of their culture, race and creed – achieve their dreams.
Battle of the Bands
Honda Battle of the Bands was created to celebrate, support and recognize the excellence of marching bands for Historically Black College or Universities. Each year eight bands are chosen to advance to the showcase held in Atlanta. Annually, Honda awards more than $200,000 in grants as part of Battle of the Bands.
Each of the college students who received the Hispanic Scholarship Fund/ Honda Scholar award has a unique story that has shaped their individual goals. But they all share the dream of becoming a trailblazer, a key to the future, an innovator.
Collegiate Women’s Sports Awards
The Collegiate Women’s Sports Awards honor the nation’s top NCAA women athletes for superior athletic skills, leadership, academic excellence and eagerness to participate in community service. This year University of California, Berkeley sophomore swimmer Missy Franklin, the NCAA and Pac-12 Swimmer of the Year, received the Honda Cup.
Campus All-Star Challenge
The Honda Campus All-Star Challenge is one of Honda’s largest and longest running philanthropic initiatives in the United States. Since 1989, the program has awarded more than $8 million in grants to participating HBCUs impacting the lives of more than 100,000 students across 22 states. Although the competition is fierce, HCASC is all about teamwork, perseverance and building friends for life.
