College Scholars 50th Anniversary Capital Campaign

College Scholars seal

It is 2023, the 50th year of the College Scholars Honors Program! As many of you know, Jeff Kovac was the Director of the College Scholars Honors Program in the 2010s. The Jeffrey and Susan Kovac Visiting Scholars Endowment was very recently started by them. The Kovac Endowment is already at the amount needed to invite a single visiting scholar to UT each year to give a talk about their work and to interact with our College Scholars students.

In 2023, our 50th year as the College Scholars Program, we aim to increase that amount by $50,000 in donations, so that we can invite a visiting scholar every semester of an academic year. Please consider donating to the Kovac Endowment to help us reach our goals!

Thank you so much!
