Alumni Donate Over $50,000 to Support Students

The Alumni Association Scholarship Fund awards 12 scholarships at $4,000 to exceptional entering and transfer students. In the program’s 40 year history, $2.5 million has been dispersed to more than 1,100 Highlanders.

In 2013 the Association began a $1.5 million campaign to award scholarships in perpetuity, and for the entire month of April, the Alumni Association Board pledged to match any donation received up to $7,500. An anonymous donor then stepped up and agreed to match an additional $7,000.

In a huge show of support, over $50,000 collectively was raised to help support students attending UCR.

The Alumni Association would like to thank all donors for their support of UCR students. To learn more about the program, please visit our scholarship page.
