UCI’s Giving Day provides much-needed support for ICS undergraduate and graduate students and their amazing cutting-edge research, but it’s also about investing in the future workforce. ICS is filled with entrepreneurs, innovators, future professors and researchers who are dedicated to making the world a better, safer place – just like you.
Dean's Excellence Fund
By supporting the ICS Dean’s Excellence Fund, you will be making a significant impact on ICS and the lives of our students. More importantly, you will be investing in the future by allowing important research to continue in the areas of AI, bioinformatics, COVID, cybersecurity, data science and software engineering, to name just a few of the key research thrusts that have become the backbone of ICS. With your help, ICS students can and will remain at the forefront of computer science, informatics and statistics, ensuring no student is left behind.
Smart Family Endowed Award for Women in ICS
Please consider giving today to support the next generation of computer scientists who seek to address the world's most pressing concerns. 80% of UCI undergraduates receive some form of financial aid. ICS is working harder than ever before to provide the means to ensure financial stability of our students. Your gift to the Smart Family Endowed Award for Women Fund will provide the vital resources to accomplish this goal for our students by supporting student awards for ICS's Women in Information Computer Sciences (WICS) program. These awards are awarded on an annual basis at the discretion of the Dean to anyone, male or female, in the WICS program.
