Since its inception in 1973, the UKWC Aid Fund has provided 273 undergraduate scholarships totaling more than $680,000.
“The UKWC Scholarship has been a tremendous help for me,” UKWC Scholarship recipient Yessenia Alvarez said. “It has allowed me to continue my studies without the financial stress of covering my education expenses. I am extremely grateful and blessed to have received the UKWC Scholarship.”
Through their philanthropic efforts, UKWC was able to assist five undergraduate students last fiscal year and six undergraduate students this fiscal year. UKWC looks forward to assisting more UK students in being successful with their academics in 2019-2020.
