UMAR recently announced that it will now assist graduate students with financial need through its new Graduate Scholarship. This is a $1,000 non-endowed scholarship and, therefore, will only be offered so long as enough money resides in the account. For more information, or to donate, please contact Alumni Coordinator Brandon Hoyer at email@example.com or 901/678-1333.
