The Alumni Success Program connects UA alumni to the resources they need to complete college and build successful careers. Our vision is to be the most successful high school alumni support program in the country based on six-year alumni college graduation rates.
College Incentive Program
University Academy Foundation offers UA alums College Incentive Program rewards of $500–$750 per semester for up to six years post-high school graduation based on certain benchmarks as they pursue higher education.
Each semester before finals, University Academy Foundation sends care packages to our alumni in college to offer encouragement and to show support.
University Academy Foundation regularly visits UA alums at their college campuses throughout the academic year to reconnect and to continue to build the network.
Support and Coaching
Alumni Success Program staff members are available to respond to the needs of UA alumni. Our staff offer counseling and support and start working regularly with UA students before they graduate from high school. The strong relationships our program staff foster with UA students before they graduate make the difference when those same students become UA alumni working toward college and career goals.
Summer Internship Program
UA Foundation’s summer internship program connects UA alumni currently enrolled in college with meaningful summer internships. These summer internships are essential experiences for college students to achieve their career goals upon graduation.
Start Your Life Grant
Graduating college and transitioning to the workforce is a big deal. UA Foundation is here to help.

The grant can be used toward moving expenses, office supplies, professional clothing, etc.
