College life may be very different at the moment, and it may seem as though our attention is exclusively on the adjustments needed to steer us through the COVID-19 crisis, but UNCF remains focused on the future. Even though you’re not on campus, deadlines for scholarships are still proceeding on normal timelines and several are due in August.

Check out these UNCF scholarships and internships currently open for applications, and complete your application before the deadlines.
