Thanks to your generous (and quick) response to our fundraising efforts in honor of Renee! Please continue to share this campaign with your Wildcat friends and family, especially those who were impacted by Renee's work with the study abroad program. We appreciate your support including $1,500 in matching funds from Renee's daughter that will be added to our total when our campaign ends.
Renee Griggs made a difference in the lives of study abroad students for over 40 years. During her tenure, thousands of students studied abroad, and it's not an exaggeration to say that Renee served all of them in one capacity or another!
Renee put her heart and soul into advocating for all students who expressed an interest in studying abroad. She went above and beyond to locate possible scholarship opportunities, help them to understand their financial aid and assist them in finding the most cost-effective programs that would fulfill their goals.
To recognize Renee's lasting contribution to the countless students she served, UA Study Abroad seeks to honor her efforts by dedicating funding to future generations of study abroad students, and particularly to those whose resources are limited and who often fall through the cracks. This is Renee's legacy: to provide a path for those students who might not otherwise have the life-changing opportunity to explore the world.
We are asking for you to join us in making a gift to the Renee Griggs Study Abroad Scholarship fund to provide future generations of Wildcats scholarships so that they can explore and learn through study abroad.
Honor Renee's legacy by making a gift today and spreading the word about this fund to your network.
