Scholarships help deserving students succeed at UC Davis

At a time when scholarship support is more vital than ever, you have the opportunity to help transform the lives of promising students.

Scholarships are one way to provide critical financial support for outstanding students—to help make their attendance at UC Davis a reality.  In many cases, the financial assistance provided by scholarships is a key factor in a student’s college choice.  Gifts for scholarships help students to invest their energies more fully in their course work, and pursue internships and leadership opportunities that enrich their personal development and career preparation.  Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, a UC Davis education is within reach of our exceptional students and future leaders.

Listed below are several scholarship options for you to consider:

Give Now

A gift of any size will be combined with others to support deserving students from one of our established scholarships listed below:

Student Scholars Fund
Gifts to the Student Scholars Fund for unrestricted scholarship support provide important financial support to high-achieving undergraduate students who attend UC Davis.

Dream Scholarship Fund
The Dream Scholarship Fund provides financial support to undocumented students who are eligible to enroll at UC Davis and are in need of financial aid. Private support remains crucial to bridge the increasing financial gap between the cost of attending and what students can afford to contribute, and to keep the dream of college within reach for deserving students.

Give Big

A gift of $2,500 or more provides a one-year scholarship in your name, or in the name of someone you wish to honor or memorialize. 

Give Forever

A gift of $25,000 or more endows a new scholarship and will provide an annual award in perpetuity.
