UNCF Celebrates Three Years of UNCF/Koch Scholars Program
UNCF, the nation’s largest and most effective minority education organization, this week highlights a three-year partnership with Koch Industries, Inc., and the Charles Koch Foundation, through the UNCF/Koch Scholars Program. This $25 million initiative demonstrates how principled entrepreneurship, economics and innovation contribute to well-being for individuals, communities and society. The goal of the UNCF/Koch Scholars Program is to support students in their understanding of entrepreneurial principles and encourage their exploration of a marketplace of ideas rooted in the values of respect, humility and integrity.
