Alumni Scholarship Fund

By making an unrestricted gift to the Alumni Scholarship Fund you are directing the university to apply your contribution to the area with the greatest need. That may be for student scholarships, faculty development, classroom technology, student activities or other urgent needs. It means that you do not place any restrictions on how the university uses your gift. You truly are helping the university prepare every student for personal and professional success.

Reasons To Support the Alumni Scholarship Fund:

  1. Tuition covers only about two-thirds of the real cost of undergraduate education.
  2. More than half of all UE undergrads depend on need-based scholarships from the university.
  3. UE’s endowment covers only about 10% of the university’s budget.
  4. Most gifts are restricted. Annual, expendable gifts provide vital flexibility.
  5. UE’s mission is global. Big ideas can be expensive. Making a difference is worth it.
  6. Every gift makes a difference! Most gifts made to UE are under $1,000. But together they add up to millions for financial aid, academics, student life,and other programs.
