The single most important concern that many students and their families face is how
to pay for a college education. Scholarships are a vital tool to assist students
in meeting educational expenses – and they are the only way that some can fulfill
their dreams of earning a college degree. By underwriting or offsetting tuition and
expenses, you help ensure that the U of M experience is affordable to motivated and
deserving students. Scholarships also play an important role in helping the University
attract and retain talented students who will be leaders in our community.
Scholarships may be need-based, merit-based or a combination of both, and they may
be designated to any academic area on campus. They may be established as an award
with a minimum annual investment of $2,000 or endowed at any level above $30,000.
We will work with you on naming the fund and designing the award criteria. However
you craft your scholarship, you can have confidence in knowing that the recipients
will be deserving students who have the ambition to succeed at the University of Memphis
Simply put, scholarships have the unique ability to change lives. An investment in
scholarships is an investment in the University's most valuable resource, its students.
The return on your investment is immeasurable and upholds the future of our university,
state and nation for generations to come.
