Frequently Asked Questions



Why should you support student scholarships?

Annual giving directly affects our US News & World Report ranking and helps ensure the continued excellence of the UCI experience. The Alumni Participation Rate is the percentage of alumni who give to UCI, no matter how small or how large the gift. As UCI improves its alumni participation rate, the university attracts even more high-quality students; continues to recruit outstanding faculty; and improves its world-class research, all while increasing the value of your degree. The diversion of $5 of each ticket will increase alumni giving.
