UNO Alumni Association Next Generation Scholarship

The University of New Orleans International Alumni Association needs your help to raise scholarship dollars! The UNOIAA is offering an opportunity for our young alumni to give back with the UNOIAA NEXT GENERATION SCHOLARSHIP. The Alumni Association will match 2 to 1 for every gift made by our alumni up to $40,000. This campaign is to engage our alumni to give directly back to scholarship dollars to their University, the University of New Orleans!

The campaign will take place from September 2017 to December 2017. Our goal is to raise $100,000 which will be used directly towards scholarship for students attending the University of New Orleans.
