The UH Alumni Association is grateful to provide a pathway for the next generation of forever Coogs through our many scholarship programs. This past year, we awarded $125,050 in scholarships to 120 students, helping them to achieve their dreams. Each student has a different story about where they came from and where they’re going, but they all have one thing in common: they each want the opportunity to realize their potential and make an impact. UH Alumni have the ability to turn dreams of a quality education into solid reality. Just read what some of our students, who have benefited from this generosity, have said.
