Alumni Fund: The Alumni Fund oversees the requests, acknowledgment, and distribution of the Alumni Fund dollars. The Alumni Fund exists to provide current Ingram Scholars and alumni resources for projects where there is a sustainable benefit for the community and where there are limited funds available for the project. The Fund seeks to facilitate the Ingram Scholar or Alumna/us' continued involvement with the project by providing the necessary funds to implement or otherwise develop the project. The Committee establishes the guidelines, evaluation criteria and review process for the Alumni Fund distribution and participates in request review and approval. Please contact Peachy Myers or Thomas Davis through the Alumni Portal if you would like to get involved as a committee member.
Current committee members: Rohit Sahni, Abby Hannifan, Amanda Jacobowski, Tina He
