UA Black Alumni – Phoenix (UABA-Phoenix)

The University of Arizona UA Black Alumni–Phoenix is the Phoenix-area club of the UA Black Alumni which is based in Tucson. Membership is open to everyone. Our club aims to unite black alumni in Maricopa County who are interested in providing support for UA fundraising initiatives and outreach programs. We are excited about the opportunity to form relationships with students, parents, community groups and corporations in Maricopa County. We need support from anyone who wants to contribute financially or their time to help mold the UA Black Alumni–Phoenix (UABA-Phoenix). Our objective is to be well-organized, recognized and productive!


Awarding scholarships with the charitable support of donors, friends, and the Arizona community is one of the most important things we do! Scholarships provide access to college for students who otherwise could not afford it, bring the best and brightest minds to the UA, and energize the economy through employment, internships, and research.

Criteria for scholarship recipients

UA Alumni Association scholarships are awarded in two categories: Merit-based — to attract and retain students of exceptional academic quality, and need-based — for students who demonstrate great financial need. (Need-based scholarship applicants must complete a free application for federal student aid.)
