Kacher-Bloom Memorial Scholarship

In recognition and remembrance of former UC students Margaret "Meg" Kacher and Sheri An Bloom. In 1985, UC suffered the loss of both of these promising young women to untimely deaths. The recipients of this scholarship exhibit the core beliefs of these to alumnae: academic excellence, civil engagement, and pride in being a Bearcat.

The 2021-22 award will be $2,500.

Eligibility requirements include:

  • Current full-time junior at UC (with at least 90 credits at the end of the Spring 2021 semester)
  • Excellence in academics (minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA)
  • Devotion to student activities and community service
  • Strong sense of loyalty and commitment to the University of Cincinnati

The top five applicants for the scholarship will go through a final interview
