Young Alumni Council's Scholarship Fund

Your gift of your class year will support the Young Alumni Council’s Scholarship Fund – which provides $1,000 scholarships to rising seniors to help cover professional development expenses, like clothes for an interview or a new laptop. Auburn is special for all alumni, so this year, let’s show our appreciation and Throwback Giveback!
