College is expensive. That’s why UCT is here to help. If you have a child or grandchild headed off to college soon, a UCT scholarship might be just what they’re looking for to help them cover expenses. Better yet, maybe you know someone who needs financial assistance for college who would also like to be a member of a great organization that gives back to their community.
Aliana Washington is an example of both. Aliana is the daughter of one of the UCT home office building’s maintenance workers, and she is one of our newest members. She joined UCT in order to apply for a scholarship through the May E. Tisdale Scholarship Program. Upon being awarded a scholarship, she had this to say: “This scholarship will help me tremendously. I will be able to achieve my goal of becoming a nurse practitioner, furthermore, changing the world one person at a time.” Good luck Aliana!
