Gifts of $1,000 or more to student scholarships qualify you for membership in The President's Circle, UST's premier annual giving society. Please visit for more information.

What does UST mean to you? Perhaps it was an educational journey, or a second home. A place where faith and friendships formed. A gateway to a brighter future. Today, we invite you to show your appreciation for UST by supporting one of the many worthy causes in need of funding.

UST has an incredible past, but with the support of our collective community, our future is limitless!
