A Scholarly Pursuit: UA Grad Gives Back to Next Generation Students

For many University of Alabama graduates, a scholarship received through the National Alumni Association or another organization had a much bigger impact beyond a monetary amount. It meant peace of mind, a sense of accomplishment or even a chance to join campus organizations and make new friends outside of a job environment. This UA alumnus pursued a second scholarship-based goal after his own graduation and has taken steps to establish a NAA scholarship to help current students coming to the Capstone.

Artis Brown

After he transferred from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point to The University of Alabama, Artis Brown, ’96, didn’t have a lot of scholarship options due to the timing of his transfer. However, Brown made it through that first year largely by utilizing student loans and Pell Grants. Then a breakthrough came the next year.
