Veterans Endowed Scholarship

We realize you have many options when it comes to making year-end donations, so we greatly appreciate your support of the Auburn Alumni Association Veterans Scholarship. This scholarship was established through the generous contributions of our first Tiger Giving Day on Dec. 1, 2015. Thanks to you, the Auburn Alumni Association has been able to establish a new, fully funded scholarship endowment of more than $25,000 for U.S. military veterans wishing to attend Auburn. The first scholarship was awarded in the spring of 2017 for the 2017-18 school year.
