10,000 Scholarships, 400 Programs: The UNCF 2012-2013 Scholarship Profile
Awokoya, Janet
Frederick D. Patterson Research Institute, UNCF
Each year, as the title of this report suggests, UNCF awards well over 10,000 scholarships, fellowships and internships under 400 programs. As UNCF receives no federal or state funds, these programs are supported by contributions from corporations, foundations, families and individuals-- investments in the futures of the students who receive the scholarships, fellowships and internships. And because the nation and every community in it need the college-educated professionals students will become upon graduation, these are investments in everyone's futures. This report, issued biennially by UNCF's Frederick D. Patterson Research Institute (FDPRI), is UNCF's accounting for these programs collectively and, for several of the largest and most innovative programs, individually as well. UNCF's scholarship programs support students at UNCF-member institutions and other colleges and universities during a critical period of their academic lives. These scholarships eliminate a significant portion of the students' unmet financial need and therefore are instrumental in their ability to remain enrolled in and graduate from their institutions.
