Scholarship Endowment

In 1976, the Alumni Association moved to assist in efforts to attract the best and brightest students to UCR. From its pool of membership dues, the Alumni Association began a scholarship program and granted $1,000 awards to six incoming freshman. The amount and number of scholarships have grown exponentially over the past three decades. Since the program’s inception, more than $2.2 million have been awarded to over 1000 students. Providing scholarship support to students is a proud tradition of the UCR Alumni Association.

In 2013, a $1.5  million campaign was launched to guarantee funding for the Alumni Association Freshman Scholarship in perpetuity. Currently, over $900,000 is in the fund and we need your help to reach our goal.

Join your fellow alumni in continuing UCR’s commitment to access and excellence by making a tax deductible contribution to the UCR Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship Campaign.
