New scholarships

(Photo by Gary Payne)The UNT Alumni Association is proud to announce two new scholarship funds available to UNT students for the 2018-19 academic year. The Denton County Alumni Chapter Endowed Scholarship will be awarded this spring to a high school graduate within Denton County. The Jerome M. "Bruzzy" Westheimer Jr. Endowed Alumni Scholarship will be awarded to a business student, with preference to a graduate of Ardmore High School in Oklahoma.

These new scholarship funds add to the UNT Alumni Association's existing scholarship portfolio of seven scholarships, including the UNT Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship, and highlight the association's commitment to supporting excellence in scholarship at UNT.

"Not only did this scholarship aid me financially for funding my master's degree," says Kacie Cheairs, a recipient of last year's UNT Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship, "but it also conveyed to my grandparents, Kenneth ('59) and Dorothy ('58, '87 M.S.) Cheairs, that their attendance at UNT was a huge part in my ability to receive this scholarship."

UNT Alumni Association members can help provide transformative experiences for future alumni by giving to the UNT Legacy Scholarship Fund.
