Scholarship Programs

Welcome to the UNCF scholarships, programs, internships and fellowships website. UNCF manages various scholarship programs and each program has its own eligibility criteria, open/close dates and required documentation. To apply for a UNCF scholarship, you must apply through the on-line application process. As many of the UNCF scholarships require that the scholarship recipient apply for Federal Student Aid, it is recommended that applicants complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Get in-depth information on federal student aid programs and applying for financial aid at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

If you are a student attending a UNCF-member college or university, it is highly recommended that you also complete the UNCF general scholarship application no later than November 30, 2014 (the application opens August 1, 2014). Once a student completes the application, the information will be used to match you to many of the specific programs administered by UNCF. The general application, however, does not apply to scholarship programs that require a separate application.

Also, don't forget to regularly check the Learn More section of this homepage for latest Internships, Fellowships and Career Path programs.

You can apply for as many scholarships for which you are eligible.  Click the FAQ link in the footer for further information.
