The e-newsletter will be distributed quarterly. To make sure you receive the email, update your contact information.
The University of Memphis Alumni Association is a non-profit organization existing
to build FRIENDS of the University and advance, connect and engage the U of M family.
Involvement in the Alumni Association is the perfect way to give back to the University.
The better the U of M and the Alumni Association are, the more YOUR degree is worth.
Through YOUNG ALUMNI you can:
- Meet and interact with your fellow Young Alumni at various events.
- Attend watch parties for select Tiger basketball and football games.
- Networking opportunities with recent graduates who are already established in their professional careers.
- Help fund the Young Alumni Legacy Scholarship.
- Stay connected with and give back to the University that did so much for you as well as the students who will follow in your footsteps.
The application deadline for the 2014 Young Alumni Legacy Scholarship has passed. Please check back in Spring 2015 for the next deadline.
This $500 scholarship is funded by Young Alumni to help deserving U of M graduates or professional-degree seeking students, who received an undergraduate degree at the U of M, in their studies.
It is the long-term goal of Young Alumni to see this scholarship endowed so that it can be permanently in place to help future graduate students of the U of M. We would like to encourage you to make a contribution, large or small, to the Young Alumni Legacy Scholarship so that we can reach our goal of endowment as soon as possible. To make a contribution online, please visit www.memphis.edu/development/give.php, click the "other" button and enter "Young Alumni Legacy Scholarship" when prompted.
Recent graduates within the last five years have the opportunity to join the Tiger Scholarship Fund for 50% of the minimum gift while receiving full benefits for that level. Young Alumni can join at 50% of any level up to Bengal Tiger ($1000).
As a Young Alumni donor, you enjoy the best of all Tiger Athletics – the best seats and the best parking. Members also have access to exclusive membership luncheons, game day events, and more! To join the Tiger Scholarship Fund today as a Young Alumni, call 901-678-2334. With your support, we’ll continue to say, “There’s never been a better time to be a Tiger!”
