UCAA Scholarships

Supporting UCAA Scholarships provides the opportunity to attract outstanding students and reward them for attending UC — in many cases “keeping UC in the family” as legacy Bearcats (lineal descendants of other UC alums). Gifts may be specifically designated to any of our UCAA Scholarships.

Gifts may be designated to specific UCAA Scholarships, including:

Christos P. Demakes Legacy Scholarship
awarded to qualifying entering UC freshmen who are lineal descendants (children or grandchildren) of UC graduates who are Sustaining or Life Members of the UC Alumni Association. This fund honors past executive director of the Alumni Association, Christos Demakes. Awards are based on academic achievement, demonstrated service and leadership.

Regional Alumni Network Scholarship
awarded to qualifying entering UC freshmen, from a participating UC regional alumni network. Awards are based on academic achievement, demonstrated service and leadership.

Kacher-Bloom Memorial Scholarship
Honors a current UC junior for outstanding academics, leadership and commitment to the university. Margaret Kacher and Sheri Ann Bloom were exceptional students devoted to the University of Cincinnati. In 1985, UC suffered the loss of both of these promising young women to untimely deaths. To recognize and remember them, the scholarship fund recognizes a current, full-time student in his or her junior year. Awards are based on academic achievement, demonstrated service and leadership.

UC Alumni Association Undergraduate Legacy Scholarship
awarded to qualifying UC undergraduates who are lineal descendants (children or grandchildren) of UC graduates who are Sustaining or Life Members of the UC Alumni Association. Applicants must have a minimum university grade point average of 3.0.
