University South Foundation, Inc. supports University of Arizona South students, faculty and staff. This Foundation raises funds for
scholarships and other University of Arizona South support.
the STARS is the University South Foundation's Annual Scholarship Fundraiser. This event started 15 years ago
to raise building funds for the Patterson Observatory and other construction.
Then, in 2011, the event switched to a Scholarship Fundraiser for University of Arizona South Students. Local businesses sponsor the event and guests bid on silent
auction items to raise money for the scholarships. And ALL the proceeds are
used for University of Arizona South Scholarships.
2011 the foundation has awarded 135 scholarships totaling over $250,000. These
students are grateful for the help and support they receive from these scholarships.
