On Tuesday, December 1, Jacobs’ alumni came together for a common purpose: to help establish the first ever JUFA Alumni Scholarship Fund.
Thanks to the #GivingTuesday Campaign, the alumni were able to raise $14,570. With these donations the alumni want to give back some of what their Jacobs University education gave to them and use the money to help bright young minds at Jacobs University become the next global leaders.
The JUFA Alumni Scholarship Fund was founded this year to enable Jacobs alumni to help shape the future of Jacobs University and keep its commitment to academic excellence and a high quality of international education for all, regardless of nationality or financial status. The Jacobs University Foundation of America will continue to grow this endowment over the next five years. The final results of this years campaign will be announced on April 9, 2016 at the reunion for North American based alumni in Palo Alto, California.
