How to get a scholarship to an HBCU?

Hi y'all! I'm a junior looking at HBCUs and I'm trying to figure out the scholarship situation. How do scholarships at HBCUs work and what steps should I take to apply for them? Are there any scholarships exclusive to HBCU students that might go unnoticed?

That's a wonderful goal! To apply for scholarships at HBCUs, start by completing the FAFSA and any financial aid forms required by the institution. Many schools automatically consider you for scholarships with your application, but also look for additional opportunities on each HBCU's financial aid website. Connect with the admissions or the financial aid office at the HBCUs you're interested in for exclusive scholarships. They often have endowed scholarships or funds set aside for students meeting specific criteria. Also, organizations such as the UNCF (United Negro College Fund) provide scholarships particularly for students at HBCUs. Don't forget to search for 'HBCU scholarships' online to uncover those that might not be widely advertised. Remember, it's never too early to start applying, and keeping track of deadlines is crucial. Good luck!
