UNCF Scholarship Alumni

“I owed a balance to my school that needed to be paid by the beginning of the year and my family and I had no idea where it was coming from. Then, we got a call that I was awarded a UNCF scholarship, and that allowed me to continue school. I will graduate from Virginia Union in May 2018. One day, I plan to become a principal and to be a member on the school board.” —Tiara Gerald, Virginia Union University
