New Scholarship Application System has Arrived!
UNCF has helped more than 500,000 students earn their college degrees since its founding. Thousands of high school and college students use our online system to help with their college costs. Now, UNCF is working hard to make the process even better!
On October 17, 2022, UNCF will begin transitioning from its current scholarship application system to a better, stronger, easier system.
Here’s what you need to know:
During this transition, you may temporarily have to work across two separate systems to access your programs, applications or submissions.

Programs prior to October 17
If you need to access a program that opened prior to October 17, 2022, that program will remain in this legacy system, where you can continue to log in to apply, check the status of your application, or provide recommendations.
TO ACCESS NEW SYSTEM, GO TO: https://opportunities.uncf.org/s/pre-login-welcome-page?_ga=2.9446455.388499887.1674250800-1773269677.1674250800
Programs after October 17
New applications for programs opened after October 17, 2022 must be accessed on the new system.
