Scholarships are financial aid awards that do not need to be repaid and are based on a combination of academic merits and financial need. They are awarded by private outside agencies directly to students, UCSC Financial Aid & Scholarship Office and/or various departments on campus.  

Scholarships provide critical support to the success of students at UC Santa Cruz. Generous support from donors have provided over $3.7 million in scholarships to students annually.  On behalf of the many students who have received support from scholarships, we would like to extend a special thank you to our generous donors!  If you are interested in supporting undergraduate students, consider giving today!
