United Negro College Fund (UNCF) Scholarships
United Negro College Fund (UNCF) Scholarships provide an extraordinary amount of scholarship opportunities for minority students with financial need. Scholarships include educational assistance for students attending participating Historically Black Colleges or Universities (HBCU) and other colleges as well.
Each scholarship program has its own eligibility criteria, deadlines and application requirements. Most scholarships require students to have a grade point average of 2.5 or above and have financial need; however, some scholarships may have higher GPA's and other requirements. Some scholarships are also reserved for students attending a UNCF member college or university.
Eligible students may apply online with a general application and be matched to an appropriate UNCF scholarship program. Some scholarship programs may also require a separate application.
UNCF, well-known for its belief that "A mind is a terrible thing to waste," is a non-profit organization founded in 1944 dedicated to helping students attend college. The organization has enabled more than 400,000 students receive college degrees at UNCF-member institutions.
The deadline VARIES each year, and the award amount VARIES.
