AUBURN ALUMNI ASSOCIATION

The Auburn Alumni Association is committed to preserving and promoting the university’s traditions, purposes and growth.

Funds raised through this campaign will significantly increase the number of scholarships awarded to Auburn students and offer them the opportunity to gain the valuable education and life experience that alumni cherish. Campaign funds will also provide engaging programs that foster and strengthen the relationship between our university and its alumni and friends.

I invite you to support scholarships, ‘paying forward’ so students can attend Auburn, obtain a great education, and live the memories we all have been fortunate to experience.

Auburn Clubs

The Auburn Clubs program is a national network of active alumni and friends, engaging approximately 28,000 individuals in club activities and programs in 2014-15. Last year, our 90 clubs awarded more than 125 annual and endowed scholarships awarded by a variety of criteria. Our campaign goal is designed to increase not only the number of scholarships, but also the number of clubs themselves, both throughout the United States and outside the country, where Auburn alumni are making a global impact. Engaged, involved alumni serve as recruiters for the university in their communities, leading to a stronger Auburn University and continuing the legacy of the Auburn Family.

$4.0 million

The Auburn Alumni PLUS Scholarship provided me the opportunity to complete my degree at one of the best institutions in the nation. War Eagle!

“I believe in education, which gives me the knowledge to work wisely and trains my mind and my hands to work skillfully.”

 These words from the Auburn Creed helped form the foundation of my career journey. Coming to Auburn was just the “first best” decision that I made. From the springboard provided by my Auburn engineering degree, I have been blessed to work, and to grow, in factories, offices and boardrooms across the country. My Auburn degree opened many doors. By being a part of the Auburn Alumni Association, I always found a local Auburn Club and a family that shared my passions and values, no matter where my career took me.

Now, I am privileged to be able to give back to Auburn a small portion of what she gave to me. I choose to give to the Auburn Alumni Association via the Circle of Excellence program and to the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering through the Engineering Eagles program. By giving to the Auburn Alumni Association, I play a role in providing scholarships to the young men and women who are the future of Auburn University, and our Auburn Family.

“And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.”

Because who we are tomorrow depends on

what we do today.
