UMAR recently announced that it will now assist graduate students with financial need through its new Graduate Scholarship. This is a $1,000 non-endowed scholarship and, therefore, will only be offered so long as enough money resides in the account. For more information, or to donate, please contact Alumni Coordinator Brandon Hoyer at or 901/678-1333.

Make a Donation

The UMAR Scholarship has reached endowment status! Our new goal is to increase the amount of the scholarship given, so we must continue to raise money. Please help make this possible by making a donation to the fund. Complete this form and remit with your donation. For further information about the UMAR Scholarship, please contact Bob Boone, UMAR Scholarship Coordinator, at 901/757-5733.
