Frequently Asked Questions

Why should you support student scholarships?

Our UCI Alumni family is here to support students from the moment they first step onto campus. Each year, we award more than $140,000 to support and retain the best and brightest students of UCI. Some of these scholarships include the UCIAA Scholarship, Distinguished Anteater Scholarship, Aldrich Fellowship, Chancellor’s Award of Distinction and various scholarships provided by our UCI Alumni Chapters. This is only made possible by the unending support of our generous donors like you! At no extra cost, a diversion of $5 of each homecoming festival ticket will go towards student scholarships.
