To apply: To apply for a UNCF scholarship, you must apply through the on-line application process. UNCF manages various scholarship programs and each program has its own eligibility criteria, open/close dates and required documentation. 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 new or returning Lane student, please complete the UNCF General Scholarship application on or before November 30, 2016. Once you complete the application, the information will be used to match you to many of the specific programs administered by UNCF.

Also, don't forget to regularly check the Learn More section on the homepage for latest Internships, Fellowships and Career Path programs. You can apply for as many scholarships for which you are eligible. Please note that UNCF has two different application platforms so depending on which scholarship application you are filling out, you may be required to register twice.
