Chancellor's Club


At a time when more than half of our undergraduates are the first in their families to go to college, it is now more important than ever to understand their unique needs to ensure their success here at UCI and beyond. 


As we can see from Melinda’s testimonial below, higher education has the power to change lives.


“As a first-generation college student, obtaining a Ph.D. was not something I had ever envisioned as part of my career path,” says Chancellor’s Club Fellowship recipient Melinda Nicewonger ’19. “During my time at UCI, I have had the privilege to live at the South Pole and be one of the very few people who will ever step foot at the bottom of the world. I wish to extend my utmost gratitude and thanks to the donors who contribute to the Chancellor’s Club Fellowship and are helping to support me as I complete my doctoral dissertation. I am truly grateful for your kindness”


By making a gift today – during UCI Giving Day – to the Chancellor’s Club, you making a direct investment in our students and in the groundbreaking research that we do every day to bring about real change and impact to the world.


With your gift, so many students like Melinda will succeed in so many ways. Thank you for helping create a brilliant future for our students
