School of Biological Sciences

For most of us, a healthy mind requires a healthy body, which in turn requires a healthy world. The study of biology intricately weaves together the threads of Mind, Body and World, shaping every facet of our existence. Within the UCI School of Biological Sciences, we are dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of life with this interconnected perspective in mind. Recent events have underscored the critical importance of biology, emphasizing how our understanding of it can affect not only individuals but entire communities and the world at large. Our students stand poised to confront the challenges of tomorrow through this holistic lens.

Today, we invite you to join us in empowering our students as they navigate the complex tapestry of Mind, Body and World, shaping a brighter future for all. Your support can make a significant difference through the following options:

BioSci Undergraduate Scholarships Fund | Goal: $2,500 in scholarship awards to 5 students

A vast majority of UCI undergraduates rely on financial aid. The challenges we've faced have highlighted the necessity of ensuring stability for our students. Your contribution to Undergraduate Scholarships provides crucial support, enabling the next generation of biologists to address global issues through the interconnected lenses of Mind, Body and World.

BioSci Graduate Fellowships Fund | Goal: $2,500 in fellowship awards to 5 students

Our graduate students lead the charge in groundbreaking research that promises to enhance lives and anticipate future hurdles. They epitomize the altruistic spirit driving their work: to make a positive impact on society. By donating to Graduate Fellowships, you acknowledge the significance of their research and the broader aim of fostering progress across the interconnected realms of Mind, Body and World.

BioSci Dean’s Excellence Fund | Goal: $1,500 in Learning and Academic Resource tutoring awards for 12 undergraduate EASE Initiative students

Your contribution to the Dean’s Excellence Fund offers crucial support for key initiatives, including the EASE Initiative, which pairs first-year BioSci students with peer tutors and mentors. Through this program, every student can pursue their academic aspirations and emerge as the next wave of innovators, healthcare professionals and visionaries, understanding the interconnectedness of Mind, Body and World in their pursuits.
