Latino Alumni Chapter

Welcome to the Latino Alumni Chapter's page for UC Irvine’s annual Giving Day! The Latino Alumni Chapter is a community of passionate individuals who share a common bond through our cultural backgrounds and a deep connection to our alma mater. Our chapter is committed to uplifting our community and celebrating the rich diversity that defines us. We believe in fostering connections, supporting one another and showcasing the beauty inherent in our shared heritage.

One of our key initiatives is to provide support to the next generation of leaders through scholarship programs. In 2023, we awarded $1,500 in scholarships and in 2024 our goal is to surpass that amount. We believe in investing in education and empowering deserving individuals to pursue their dreams.

Get involved and join us in making a difference! Join our chapter and be a part of a thriving community. Your support on Giving Day will enable us to continue organizing meaningful events, support scholarships and continue important Latino Chapter initiatives.

Together, we can make a lasting impact on our alma mater and the communities we serve. Thank you for being a vital part of our journey!
