UNCF Seeks Emergency Financial Aid for Black Students

On Dec. 12, The United Negro College Fund (UNCF) announced a $5 million emergency fund-raising campaign to aid hundreds of financially strapped seniors at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) who are in immediate danger of not graduating. UNCF grants provide about $1,600 per student, but the group says that is not enough in lean economic times.
