UNCF Fact Sheet

UNCF, the country’s largest and most effective minority education organization, enables students to get the college education they need and that we as a nation need them to have. 

UNCF changes lives by helping the students of today become the teachers, scientists, business people, doctors and nurses of tomorrow. As such, we are so much more than a collection of facts and stats. But we are extremely proud of our accomplishments. They include:

  • Awarding more than 7,000 scholarships worth about $83 million
  • Raising more than $5 billion to send students to and through college since UNCF’s 1944 inception
  • Providing operating funds that make it possible for UNCF’s member HBCUs to offer their students quality academic programs in a small college environment and still keep their average tuition approximately 28% lower than comparable institutions
  • Advocating for education policy and student and financial aid by serving as the voice of students and HBCUs before Congress and federal agencies
