MISS UNCF: A VISION WORTH INVESTING IN       

 A TRACK RECORD OF STUDENT OUTCOMES


Deciding to invest in UNCF isn’t a leap of faith. Recipients of our scholarship awards consistently reward their investors with results and social returns.

  • UNCF African American freshman scholarship recipients have a 70 percent six-year graduation rate, 13 percentage points higher than the national average for students of all races, and 32 percentage points higher than the national average for all African Americans.
  • With a $5,000 UNCF scholarship given to an African American freshman, his/her likelihood of graduating increases by nearly nine percentage points.
  • Ninety four percent of African American freshmen who received a UNCF scholarship returned for their sophomore year. In comparison, the national rate for students of all races is 78 percent.
