Circle of Excellence

 

Your Auburn Alumni Association offers an exciting opportunity for Life Members to give back to Auburn University. The Circle of Excellence was created to increase the endowment for the Auburn Alumni Association Endowed Scholarships, the scholarship program at Auburn University designed to specifically support the eligible children of life members of your Auburn Alumni Association. As life members were paying their membership contributions, a portion of the contributions was designated to the Alumni Scholarship Endowment Fund. It is our goal to continue increasing the endowment to provide more scholarships to deserving students. In doing so, we invite our life members to continue to help us reach this goal.

“Attending Auburn University has always been a dream of mine, and I am excited for this journey to begin. It is an honor and a blessing to be selected for the Auburn Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship.”
