College of Engineering

On April 21, we need the entire UK Engineering family to come together for student scholarships. Help our students become the engineers who are changing the world!

 

  • If we find 250 donors: Electrical engineering alum Kenneth Ruth (BSEE 1972) will give $25,000 when we reach 250 unique donors.
  • If we find 500 donors: The Young Alumni Philanthropy Council will donate $25,000 when we reach 500 unique donors. 
  • If we raise $500,000: Materials engineering alum Jack Cheng (PhD MSE 2000) will give $1,000,000 to the College of Engineering!

 

Gifts to UK's Engineering Scholarship Gift Fund provide scholarships, create new lab spaces and support student organizations. They enable engineering students to focus on their education instead of how they are going to pay for it.

 

Let's come together to invest in a better future for our engineering students, the engineering profession and our world!
