Anteaters in the Arts
It only takes a little to make a BIG impact.

UCI is recognized by The New York Times as one of the top universities “doing the most for the American dream.” Many of our young Anteater dreams are dependent on scholarships and financial aid in order to complete their degree here at UCI. A gift from you today will make an IMPACT on a deserving scholar.


UCI’s School of Humanities stands at the core of higher education. The humanities teach our students to think critically, communicate effectively, engage in conversations about ideas that matter, and find solutions to humanity’s grand challenges.  


We provide students with foundational skills, both in the classroom and beyond campus, which prepare them for life after college. In our classrooms, students grow as thinkers and scholars, while learning experiences beyond the classroom take students to the next level. We offer humanities students life-changing opportunities to do internships and mentored research, to study abroad, to experience workshops and training in professionally valuable skills, and to engage in conversations with leaders, creators and scholars. 


Please help make a young Anteaters dream of a world-class education come true and give today. It’s not how much you give – just THAT you give! Help us reach UCI's 1,000 alumni donor goal!


Together—in just one day!—we can continue to give students these experiences and help inspire the next generation of citizen artists, because it only takes a little to make a BIG IMPACT!

The purpose of the Anteaters in the Arts Chapter is to enrich the lives of UCI Alumni that are associated or interested in all forms of artistic expression, creation, appreciation and the support of it.  We also engage alumni in the advancement of UC Irvine and the creation of new connections and relationships that deliver lifelong value. 


Our chapter supports students in the School of Humanities (SOH) and the Claire Trevor School of the Art (CTSA). So join us and be a part of our passionate support of art scholars and practitioners at both these outstanding schools.
