CTSA Dean’s Scholarship Fund
It only takes a little to make a BIG impact.

The Claire Trevor School of the Arts (CTSA) Dean’s Scholarship Fund serves students in Art, Dance, Drama and Music with $500 mini-scholarships. Ensuring our talented students are supported is vital to the resilience of the arts at UCI. In just one day, contributions made on Giving Day will help us reach our goal of providing need and merit-based scholarships for at least 50 remarkable students. 

Student Support and Scholarships: UCI is the leading university in the nation providing access to all qualified students, no matter their background. Our students at CTSA rely on the generous support of donors like you—this year more than ever—to make their educational and artistic aspirations come alive. 

Claire Trevor School of the Arts Opportunity: The Dean’s Scholarship Fund has a direct impact on the student experience at CTSA. These mini-scholarships assist with the smaller—and often unsung—costs of an arts education at UCI, which include:

  • Laboratory fees for studio classes
  • Required private vocal and instrumental music instruction
  • Textbooks for arts and general education classes
  • Basic needs like groceries, rent, or personal necessities, which are crucial for studying and performing
  • Materials and equipment for required course projects and independent work

Your gift of any amount is an investment in arts education at UCI. Investing in the Dean’s Scholarship Fund is one of the most powerful ways in which you can directly help students at CTSA access the learning experiences they need to thrive. 

Your generosity will supply awardees the financial flexibility to bolster their virtual learning resources and showcase their talents, especially when you participate in one of our giving challenges throughout the day. Each time we complete a challenge more dollars are unlocked for student scholarships. If all of the challenges are unlocked, we can offer 22 more scholarships to students at the Claire Trevor School of the Arts!

Thank you for sharing in the belief that the arts have the power to transform society for the better. Together—in just one day—we will continue to champion the arts and the next generation of creative leaders at UCI.
