Tampa Bay UK Alumni Club Endowed Scholarship Fund

The Tampa Bay UK Alumni Club has pledged to endow a scholarship fund to benefit Tampa Bay students who attend UK.

One of the most important services UK alumni and friends and alumni clubs provide to the University of Kentucky is scholarships to deserving students who wish to attend UK.  Many times, this scholarship support is the difference in a student’s ability to attend college.  An endowed scholarship makes a statement that our Club is giving back to the Tampa Bay community and to the University.  By having an endowed fund, only the interest from the fund is awarded in scholarships, leaving the principal intact to provide income in perpetuity, even if the Tampa Bay UK Alumni Club no longer exists.

We have reached our initial endowment level of $10,000. HUGE THANKS to all who donated via game watch parties, Derby parties, garage sales and by making individual contributions. That's the first step.  The fund must continue to grow to kick off the interest for the scholarships. Please consider making a donation today!

To make a tax deductible contribution, go to  Under Gift Information, enter the information below exactly as it is worded.

Thank you for your consideration of such a worthy cause and we hope you will join us in our effort to provide financial assistance to future UK alumni.
