More than 220 alumni came together last summer to make a difference for several deserving UTA students. As part of the Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) scholarship campaign, alumni from each class of the last 10 years competed against each other to raise as many $1,000 scholarships as possible.
"I gave because I know the financial burden of paying for school while attending can be overwhelming," says Amanda Jordan ('16 MA, Communication). "It was my opportunity to help the next generation of Mavericks."
Ten UTA students were awarded GOLD scholarships for the fall semester.
"This scholarship helps me focus better on my dissertation by reducing a significant portion of the financial burden," says Prashanth Ravi, a mechanical engineering PhD candidate and a GOLD scholarship recipient.
"I am extremely grateful to the alumni donors for their generosity. It is gifts like the GOLD scholarship that encourage students to give their best to academics and remember upon graduation what UTA has given them during their time here."

Plan to make an impact
Gifts to support uta come in all shapes and sizes. Estate and planned gifts are often as unique as the individual donor and require keen attention to detail to get them right.
Fortunately, the University has hired a new senior director for gift and estate planning to help you think through certain types of gifts that benefit you and make a lasting difference at UTA.
Kurt Bartley, FCEP (Fellow in Charitable Estate Planning), joined the University this past spring from Regis University in Denver, Colorado, where he gained years of experience in the intricacies of estate gifts. His experience will help you get the most out of your assets.
