UA Hispanic Alumni Club (UAHA)

The University of Arizona Hispanic Alumni (UAHA) is made up of accomplished Hispanic graduates and former students of the UA who live throughout the world. UAHA was founded in 1982 to promote academic excellence among Hispanic students at the University, provide financial and mentoring support to qualified and deserving students, and develop links between alumni and supporters in the professional and business community. Since 1986, UAHA has awarded nearly 2,500 scholarships worth more than $5.3 million.

UAHA membership connects you to the UA, fellow alumni and incredible UA Alumni Association benefits. The Alumni Association provides career resources, networking opportunities and member communications that keep you up-to-date about the UA.
