Current priorities for the college reflect the significant need for student support in the form of scholarships and fellowships as well as programmatic innovations that enhance the student experience. Read more about these priorities below.
The A&S Scholarship Fund provides the dean of the college with the means to provide incoming freshman with 4-year renewable scholarships, allowing us to recruit bright and promising students who may otherwise not be able to attend UC.
The Dean’s Venture Fund allows the dean to invest strategically in interdisciplinary programs, research projects, curriculum enhancements and other opportunities that strengthen the academic experience within the McMicken College.
Gifts to the A&S Annual Fund provide sustaining support for the McMicken College and afford the dean with funding to address unforeseen needs and opportunities – repairs or replacement for a piece of expensive scientific equipment that breaks unexpectedly, or travel costs for a graduate student to present their work at an international professional conference, for example.
Competitive fellowships, travel awards, and summer research stipends help the college compete with other top state, regional and national universities for the very best students and ensure that they have the resources they need to thrive. Your gifts make the UC experience possible for these students as we train the next generation of leaders for academia, industry, and the public sector.
