YOU DID IT!

December 04, 2015

Thanks to the generosity of 270 donors who stepped up during Tiger Giving Day to donate $25,065, the Auburn Alumni Association will be able to establish an endowed scholarship to help veterans of our armed services attend Auburn University. An endowed scholarship helps not just one student veteran, but students for years to come.

If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to visit https://rise.auburn.edu/project/1289 to watch the inspiring video by AU senior and Afghanistan war veteran Josh Wetzel.

On behalf of students like Josh, and those like him who will be able to attend Auburn in the future because of your donations, we offer a hearty thank you and War Eagle!
