Being a leading public metropolitan research university takes work — and the support of our alumni and friends. The State of Florida provides the funding that makes UCF a state university but it is philanthropy that makes UCF a great university. Join us and thousands of like-minded UCF donors who recognize the power and promise of higher education. You can make a difference.
Help remove financial barriers to achieving a degree. Student scholarships make it possible for students to continue their education when they may not otherwise be able to afford it. Scholarships also allow UCF to attract academic superstars who may have many college options available to them.

Give Back to Your College
We don’t want [access to fewer financial opportunities] to stand in the way of living out the full potential of what was the greatest four years of a learning experience for so many of us.
Contributing to student scholarships means helping [students] succeed on the path to life-changing degrees — and investing in our community, where many of them will pursue their careers and raise their families.
I give back so I can continue to open opportunities to generations of students — my passion is to invest in the future through education.
Opportunity lifts the recipient, but it also lifts the entire generation. I hope this [Notarantonio Endowed Nursing] scholarship provides the net for someone to take that leap into a brighter future.
Establishing the D’Amato-Kubiet Family Endowed Scholarship makes my soul feel good. It is a joy and a privilege to give students the opportunity to become professional nurses.
We are evolving toward a better future, and with our donations, UCF can continue our shared mission to impact positive change and empowerment through knowledge and opportunity.
