UNCF is the largest provider of scholarships to underserved populations, outside of the federal government, and awarded over $1.3 million in scholarships in the state of South Carolina during the 2018-19 academic year. These dollars impact the lives of students at UNCF’s five-member schools in our area (Allen University, Benedict College, Claflin University, Morris College and Voorhees College), as well as students attending Clemson University, University of South Carolina, and technical schools.
