Rob and Dena Stowers Endowed Scholarship

A conversation with Rob Stowers.

Why did you choose to create a scholarship at Auburn University?
I want to help deserving, first generation college students fulfill their dream of attending Auburn.

What would you want the recipients of this scholarship to know about the person for whom it is named?
Dena and I love Auburn and want to help bright, deserving students learn to love Auburn. I am a first generation college graduate and I understand how important earning a degree is for students and their future families’ well being.

Tell us about your Auburn story, favorite tradition, a “War Eagle!” moment, or what Auburn has meant to you.
Auburn has given me the education, skills, and confidence to become a successful business person. The values I had reinforced during my years at Auburn have helped guide me during the last 40 years as we try to help people that need a little boost to ensure their happiness and success.

What do you hope your recipients gain through this scholarship?
I hope that students see the value of giving so they may do the same when they are fiscally able.
