Established in 1944 (from an idea presented by Dr. Frederick D. Pattison), the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) was designed to enhance the quality of education (and the availability of access) for minority students across the United States. Currently the organization supports nearly 65,000 students who attend UNCF's 39 member institutions and 950 other colleges and universities throughout the country. At the website, visitors can learn about UNCF's member institutions (which include schools such as Morehouse and Clark Atlanta University), learn about internships programs, corporate partnerships, and elect to donate money to the UNCF. Currently enrolled students will want to make sure to look at the scholarship section, as it contains the particulars about applying for a diverse array scholarship programs, such as the Gates Millennium Scholars initiative.
