There are dozens of UNCF Scholarships for which you may qualify. UNCF has helped more than 500,000 students earn their college degrees since its founding. UNCF is the nation’s largest private scholarship provider to minority group members. Each year, we award more than $100 million in scholarships to students attending more than 1,100 schools across the country, including our prestigious network of 37 HBCUs.
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. Each scholarship or grant program has its own eligibility criteria and application requirements, so it’s important to do your research.
