Outreach Toolkit: How to Access UNCF Scholarships

A few simple steps will open opportunities to you!

To apply for a UNCF scholarship, you must visit the online application system at UNCF.org/scholarships.

Many UNCF scholarships require applicants to apply for Federal Student Aid; it is recommended that applicants complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The eligibility criteria and dates for scholarships and programs vary, so students should use UNCF’s online portal to narrow down the programs that best suit them.

UNCF Empower Me Tour

  • UNCF engages communities through outreach to various schools and colleges. One of the largest outreach programs is the UNCF Empower Me Tour (EMT), which was created to empower a movement among young people, motivating them toward academic excellence, personal responsibility and fiscal health through relevant program content.
  • The free tour engages young people at crucial life stages through college readiness, career success and financial literacy messaging. The target audience is underserved students grades 9-12, college students, alumni, college administrators, parents, educators and the community at-large.
