Give to Our Scholarships and Fellowship

UCIAA scholarships are intended to attract, support and retain the best and brightest students to UCI.  Each year, more than $85,000 is awarded to UCI students through the UCI Alumni Association.  It is through the financial support of alumni, family and friends that the association is able to provide this vital assistance to our students.

Every gift matters. Every giver makes a difference.

All gifts, great or small, make a difference. Annual gifts allow academic leaders to react to immediate priorities or to help accomplish strategic initiatives. Your gift today can impact research, financial aid, faculty, and our students. To learn more about Giving, please visit

Yas Sanaiha, Distinguished Anteater Award recipient

“Because of your generosity I am able to afford medical school application costs, helping me fulfill my dream of becoming a physician and serving my community. I hope to carry on the spirit of your kindness throughout my life. I look forward to the day when I will be able to provide similar support and encouragement to ambitious students.”
