Becoming a Life Member, you tell the world that you’re proud of the place you once called home.

Cougar Pride is contagious: It helps our alma mater attract some of the brightest scholars in the country.

Over 40 alumni associations — and hundreds of events and programs throughout the year — keep Life Members actively engaged with other UH Cougars. Your membership powers our programming, strengthens the University, enhances student life and helps you stay a vital part of the UH experience.
#3 Fuel a Legacy for Life!
Your membership fuels the UH Alumni Association’s Legacy Scholarship, which is endowed through the UHAA Foundation and awarded to undergraduates who are children or grandchildren of alumni, these scholarships support students as they become the next generation to boast of a UH degree.

Life Members get “first dibs” on signature special events. You’ll be among the first invited to celebrate a major milestone for the University, the life and legacy of distinguished alum or the recognition of the 100 fastest-growing Cougar-led businesses.
#5 Benefit for Life!
