Five Universities that Offer UNCF Scholarships to International Students without IELTS/TOEFL Requirement

The United Negro College Fund (UNCF) is a nonprofit organization that assists historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) by providing multiple scholarship programs for American students and international students. There are some UNCF member institutions that offer admission and scholarships to international applicants without demanding the submission of proof of English language proficiency such as IELTS or TOEFL test scores. Here are some of the UNCF partner universities that offer admission and UNCF scholarships without IELTS/TOEFL requirements.


1.) Fisk University, Nashville, Tennessee


In addition to granting application fee waivers, Fisk University grants international students the choice of demonstrating English language proficiency through other means such as the submission of academic transcripts and recommendation letters, etc. This privilege applies to the UNCF scholarship applicants.


2.) Tougaloo College, Tougaloo, Mississippi


Tougaloo College completely waives the requirement for the submission of standardized English language proficiency Exam scores for international students who have been granted admission into Tougaloo College as well as awarded a UNCF scholarship. The scholarship offers full tuition coverage and flight payment.


3.) Dillard University, New Orleans, Louisiana


Dillard University allows international candidates who are eligible for its fully funded specialized UNCF Global Scholars Awards to defer English Language testing while applying for admission into Dillard University.


4.) Clark Atlanta University (CAU), Atlanta, Georgia


This university excludes certain international first-year students from submitting proof of English Language proficiency (IELTS/TOEFL).
