In 1996, recognizing the increasing costs of a college education, Business Alumni Association leaders led alumni to create an endowed scholarship fund for future business students. Dozens of small gifts from $10 to $200 were united to start a $10,000 endowment. The annual earnings support scholarships for bright and talented students and have served an integral role in helping many reach graduation.
Today's alumni leaders are continuing the tradition. On Giving Tuesday, November 27, 2018, business alumni are invited to unite your gifts - big and small - to add $10,000 to the alumni endowed scholarship fund to support more students.
Some of us were privileged to enjoy scholarships when we were students. Others of us wished we had a little help during our journey. Now, we have the chance to help the next generation.
Every gift, no matter the size, is important. What is most important is that we give together and continue the tradition of giving back!
