The UK Alumni Association recognized 187 students who will receive scholarships totaling $210,275 during its annual UK Alumni Scholarship Celebration held Friday, Sept. 23, at the Bill Gatton Student Center. The scholarships for the 2022-2023 academic year are from the UK Alumni Association, local UK Alumni Association clubs and individual alumni scholarship funds.
During the 2021-2022 fiscal year, a combined total of $355,078 in gifts were made to alumni scholarship funds. Additionally, 14 alumni clubs were recognized for donating $3,000 or more to their scholarship funds in 2021-2022: Chicagoland, Christian County, Clark County, Cumberland Valley East, Fayette County, Greater Houston, Kansas City, Greater Louisville, McCracken County, Greater Nashville, New York City, Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati, Sarasota/Suncoast and Tampa Bay.
The Scholarship Celebration allowed scholarship recipients and donors the opportunity to meet one another, providing the opportunity for the donor to learn more about the student who benefits from their support. It also allowed the recipient to express gratitude to the donor. Three scholarship recipients were highlighted in a video thanking donors for their generosity.
