UCAA 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).

Gifts may be designated to specific UCAA Scholarships, including:

  • 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.
