Finding Scholarships and Grants

To find and apply for a UNCF scholarship, go to Scholarships to explore UNCF scholarships available to those who meet the following criteria:

  • Minimum GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale
  • Full-time enrollment in a college or university, presently or prospectively
  • FAFSA application filed
  • Financial need verified by the financial aid director of the college or university you wish to attend

Scholarships and grants are available from many different organizations, including UNCF and through the federal government. Unlike loans, which you will eventually need to pay back, scholarships and grants do not need to be repaid - and unlike work-study programs, they do not require you to hold an on-campus job while in school.
