OUR 5TH ANNUAL GIVING DAY WAS A SUCCESS! IF YOU MISSED THE OPPORUNITY TO PARTICIPATE BUT WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT UCI, YOU CAN STILL GIVE BY CLICKING HERE.

At UCI, we believe a world-class education should be accessible to all students — regardless of background or circumstance.

 

More than 70 percent of our students receive some form of financial aid, and UCI continues to be recognized by The New York Times as one of the top universities “doing the most for the American dream.”

 

On UCI Giving Day, you have the power to enrich the lives of some of the best and brightest students in the nation. Explore some of the areas below and make a gift that impacts our Anteaters.
