The United Negro College Fund hands out an array of scholarships each year to those who exhibit top leadership skills and high academic success. Eligibility requirements, award amounts and whether the award is need or merit based varies from program to program. The good news is that many UNCF scholarships are regional, meaning that you'll only compete against students from your college or home town to win. A full list of awards is available here.
