ACSA – an initiative of the Atlanta Housing Authority, with UNCF as the program’s fiscal agent – provides scholarship assistance to eligible AHA-assisted residents between the ages of 16 and 30 to help them attend the college, university, or technical school of their choice. To encourage lifelong learning and in accordance with AHA’s vision for building healthy, mixed-income communities and encouraging self-sufficiency, the goal of ACSA is to encourage more AHA-assisted youth to consider and pursue higher education. ACSA scholars attend accredited institutions of higher learning all across the country and are not limited to UNCF-member schools.
Scholarships are awarded without regard to race, religion, gender, color, national origin, disability, or familial status. All candidates for the scholarship must participate in the ACSA scholarship application process and meet established criteria. All awardees are chosen by an official selection committee which is made up of members from private-sector and advised by UNCF.
