Funding Opportunities

UCAA Advancement Fund
Supporting this fund strengthens and expands the programs and services available to UC students and alumni. This fund elevates the delivery of high-quality events, communications and ongoing operations that positively impact the UC alumni experience locally, nationally and internationally.

May Grieshaber Memorial Fund
Supporting this fund enables UCAA to maintain and enhance the focal point of UC’s alumni engagement activities, the Russell C. Myers Alumni Center. In order to fulfill its mission, the UC Alumni Association plans to upgrade its facilities to reflect the quality of  their programs and services and to better serve UC alumni. 

UCAA Student Engagement Fund
Supporting this fund allows UCAA to create, promote and foster an ‘alumni culture’ among current University of Cincinnati students. The student experience is a driving factor for involvement with UC post-graduation. Strengthening the student experience through UCAA’s engagement initiatives is a vital way to connect with UC’s future alumni. 

UCAA Student Scholarships
Supporting UCAA Scholarships helps UC attract, obtain and reward outstanding students  — in many cases “keeping UC in the family” as legacy Bearcats (lineal descendants of other UC alums).
