In Search of Scholarship Support
Sean McCabe, CEAS '09,
YP Scholarship Chair

Spring is finally here, which means it's time to select the recipients of the Kacher-Bloom Memorial Scholarship for the 2014-15 school year and reflect on the importance of this ongoing effort. Scholarship offers are made by the Kacher-Bloom Scholarship Committee, composed of a group of diverse UC representatives, including two family members of the scholarship's namesakes.

The UCYPs are charged with overseeing the scholarship created in remembrance of former UC students Margaret Kacher and Sheri An Bloom who died suddenly in 1985. The scholarship that honors them goes to soon-to-be seniors who demonstrate uncommon devotion to student activities and community service while displaying a strong sense of loyalty and commitment to UC.

Funding the Kacher-Bloom Memorial Scholarship is the UCYPs' primary philanthropic effort, and our focus is to grow the scholarship endowment. Gifts to the endowment can be made online.
