Every year, the UCR Alumni Association awards a number of scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as incoming freshman and transfer students. In 1976, the UCR Alumni Association wanted to help attract the best and brightest students to UCR. From its pool of membership dues, the Alumni Association began a scholarship program and granted $1,000 awards to six incoming freshman students. The amount and number of scholarships have grown exponentially over the past three decades. Since the program’s inception, more than $2.2 million have been awarded to over 1000 students. Providing scholarship support to students is a proud tradition of the UCR Alumni Association.
