Dr. Pat Graham Scholarship

Note:  Good news!  We hit the goal but there is still time for you to be included.  Every gift makes a difference and will provide opportunities for Roadrunners while also honoring Dr. Graham.  Help us do even more. Thank you.

You Can Honor a UTSA Gem

Dr. Pat Graham has been a blessing to many students, faculty and staff at UTSA for almost 43 years!  She has touched every generation of Roadrunners.  Whether it is advising students one-on-one or as a mentor for the UTSA Ambassadors, Alpha Lambda Delta or another student organization, she has a knack for spotting potential.  She helps you believe in yourself and then pushes you to go beyond what you previously thought possible.  It is a process that she describes as “buffing diamonds.”

Students arrive at UTSA ready to fulfill their dreams and further their education.  Through guidance and encouragement—and sometimes tough love from Dr. Graham—the “diamonds” shine brighter.  You may have been a beneficiary of her special brand of caring and love.

Will you honor Dr. Graham because of all she has done for UTSA students? 

As a friend of Dr. Graham, you know that she always puts the students first.  That is why when friends and students wanted to honor her many decades of service to UTSA in 2008, the Dr. Patricia Graham Endowed Scholarship was created. Your gifts to the scholarship honor her but also help students who need financial aid to graduate.

For many students, a scholarship makes it possible for them to get involved in research, join a student organization or volunteer in the community because they won’t have to work as often to afford college.  You can be a hero to a student scholar with a gift today.

You can also honor your connection to Dr. Graham, a special mentor and friend.

Long-time Dr. Graham friends John Kaulfus and Janis Bush, joined by UTSA alumni, students and colleagues, are leading this project to honor Dr. Graham.  The goal they have set is to substantially increase the endowment so that more students in need of financial aid can be granted a Dr. Pat Graham Scholarship.

There are two ways YOU can make a difference today:

1. Make a gift and take advantage of some of the fun perks listed on the right.

2. Then, use the social media and email links above to invite your friends to honor Dr. Graham, too.

THANK YOU!  Please join us and make your gift today!
