The UNCF (United Negro College Fund) Empower Me Tour® (EMT) is virtually headed to New York to award thousands of dollars in college scholarships to local high school students.

Thousands of dollars will be awarded to high school graduating seniors in attendance.

UNCF is the largest scholarship provider to students of color in the United States, awarding more than $100 million annually in scholarships to more than 7,200 students across the country.

Through partners and national sponsors such as Wells Fargo, P&G, Disney, Goldman Sachs, FedEx, and more, UNCF’s Empower Me Tour is able to offer the full college fair experience with access to recruiters from HBCUs, college prep workshops, dynamic presenters, and award-winning educational experts. Students will have an opportunity to apply for college admission, financial aid, and scholarships, including the EMT Merit Scholarship, which will be virtually awarded on the spot.

“EMT is a wonderful program that Wells ‪Fargo is tremendously proud to sponsor. For more than 10 years, Wells Fargo employees across the country have supported thousands of deserving students. We look forward to helping more students pursue their higher education goals this year,” said Sharon Murphy, executive vice president and head of end-user and collaboration services technology at Wells ‪Fargo and a UNCF national board member.

Since 2010, Wells Fargo has provided $13.4 million to support UNCF scholarships and programming and more than $22 million to all HBCUs over the last decade.
