“Being a Fund II UNCF STEM Scholar” —  Kendra Carroll

“Being a Fund II UNCF STEM Scholar means progress."

The Fund II Foundation’s UNCF STEM Scholars Program is welcoming our second cohort of 100 of the nation's top college-bound African American STEM scholars. These scholars represent 28 states nationwide and 69 elite academic institutions, including 11 HBCUs (5 are which are UNCF-member institutions). 

The 2016 STEM Scholars have achieved a few notable mentions, including a highlight in Forbes Magazine "30 under 30" Winner; the youngest summer intern placement at Goldman Sachs Headquarters in New York and a number of scholars are participating in advanced scientific research overseas this summer.

Hear from an inaugural FUND II UNCF STEM Scholar to Cohort 2 UNCF STEM Scholar.


“Being a Fund II UNCF STEM Scholar means progress. It signifies the efforts being put in motion to make the world of STEM more diverse, and in return, cohesive. I plan on becoming much more than a standard physician. I will be a vessel of reassurance for my patients, as well as my colleagues."
