Alumni Association Scholarship Fund

In 1991 the UCSC Alumni Council voted to establish an endowed Alumni Association Scholarship Fund to meet the pressing need for increased private support for UC Santa Cruz students. During the scholarship fund's first two years, alumni and friends contributed more than $100,000. The endowment is now valued at nearly $2 million. Interest income generated by the endowment fund, combined with a portion of annual contributions, is used to fund yearly scholarship awards.

Since the establishment of the Alumni Association Scholarship Fund, almost $1.5 million in scholarship aid has been distributed to more than 600 UC Santa Cruz students. The scholarship recipients are selected annually through a subcommittee of the Alumni Association Council. Students do not directly apply for this scholarship. The Financial Aid Office provides the Alumni Association Scholarship Committee with the applications to review in order to select the scholarship recipients. Once selected, scholarship recipients continue recieving the annual award until they graduate, as long as they remain in good academic standing.
