UNCF Goes on the Road to Boost Interest in HBCUs

The United Negro College Fund’s (UNCF) Empower Me Tour is a traveling college-and-career-readiness roadshow that aims to inform students about educational opportunities at UNCF member institutions. Last year alone, nearly $4 million in scholarships were awarded by UNCF-member institutions during the tour.

Participants in the Empower Me Tour attend HBCU workshops with award-winning speakers and presenters. Recruiters are able to offer on-site admission and scholarships. The tour also offers sessions for parents to learn more about how to prepare financially for their child’s higher education.
