The Alumni Scholarship Program initiative began in 1967, awarding 25 entering freshmen $500 a year, for four years. Through your generosity, the program has grown to awarding nearly 3,000 students annually. Contributing to the National Alumni Association during Bama Blitz will help provide scholarship assistance to not only incoming freshmen, but currently enrolled, transfer and graduate students as they strive to achieve their dream of graduating from The University of Alabama. With your support, the NAA will continue to assist students such as these:
Emily is a freshman majoring in apparel and textiles and is a member of Delta Delta Delta sorority. She is a fifth-generation University student and received the Steven C. Hays Memorial Endowed Scholarship, the Marshall County Chapter book grant and the Alumni Heritage Scholarship. "UA has become my new home because of the friendships I’ve made on campus — through Tri Delta, Greek Ambassadors, and other organizations, I’ve been blessed to make so many connections with people.”
Jack is a freshman from New Orleans majoring in finance. He is a recipient of the UA Horizons Endowed Scholarship and the New Orleans Chapter and UA Horizons scholarships, which have made it possible for him to achieve his dream of attending the University and continuing his family tradition. “Growing up, my parents would tell stories of attending Bama games and visiting fraternity houses. However, the most important advice they gave me was to stay on top of school and work hard — and of course, they reminded me that college is the best years of your life, and to have fun.”
Jackson is a sophomore from Northport majoring in public relations. He is a recipient of the Alabama Credit Union Employee Endowed Scholarship, the Bobby and Cathy Wooldridge Endowed Scholarship, the Tom and Lois Hammond Memorial Endowed Scholarship and the Alumni Scholar Award. He is the vice president of the United Greek Council and is involved in Public Relations Student Society of America, the Public Relations Council of Alabama and Phi Sigma Pi National Honor Fraternity and volunteers with the Secret Meals for Hungry Children. “I’m proud to go to the Capstone where I’m taught by world-class and award-winning faculty who have the expertise and experience to mold us into better professionals."
