CAMBUS Scholarship Fund

In 2021, the CAMBUS Scholarship fund was established through the UI Center for Advancement. The effort was spearheaded by CAMBUS alumni Doug Couto and aimed to provide academic scholarships to CAMBUS student employees. Through the generous donations of Doug and others, CAMBUS has awarded 10 scholarships in 2022 to student employees in the amount of $1,000 each. It is a fitting tribute to award these scholarships to student employees during CAMBUS' 50th year of service and that this is made possible by our CAMBUS family alumni network.

It is our hope that to continue fundraising to provide scholarships to CAMBUS employees each year. The UI Center for Advancement is managing donations to the scholarship funds account. If you would like to make a donation to the scholarship fund, visit the website below.

We also plan to incorporate fundraising for the scholarship in the 50-year celebration and alumni reunion event.
