Class Scholarships

Many of our alumni have established, or are in the process of establishing, class scholarships to help fund the education of deserving students at Lab.

For classes celebrating milestone reunions this year, we will update the data on incoming gifts and pledges every Wednesday through October 19, 2016. After that time, and for all other classes, we will update the data annually, following the June 30 close of the fiscal year, once financial records have been finalized.

If you have any questions about this information, or if you would like to discuss creating or supporting a scholarship fund, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations and Development at alumni@ucls.uchicago.edu or 773-702-0578.

The history of class scholarships at Lab has been one of many starts. Beginning with the Class of 1953 in 2004, the first class scholarship was established. Over time, a few more classes came together to start their own.

Beginning in 2007, parents of Lab seniors began to establish class scholarships in honor of their graduating children. These funds became lasting legacies to those classes and permanent funds that alumni can continue to grow as they enter their careers and begin to give back.

Then in 2009, the Class of 1962 helped Lab establish a serious reunion giving program focused initially on the establishment of a 50th Reunion Class Scholarship, which has now grown to include many classes doing the same.

Interested in starting a class scholarship?

In order to establish a scholarship, a class must raise $100,000 in gifts or pledges. These gifts and pledges can be paid out over five years and can also be made through gifts of securities.

Alumni from the classes of the past 20 years can establish a scholarship at a lower level with some restrictions.
