Orange County Alumni Chapter

At the Orange County Alumni Chapter, our goal for Giving Day is to raise money for the scholarship fund that provides financial assistance to qualified and deserving UC Irvine students.

A gift to the scholarship fund will directly impact and support the students’ financial needs and also mean more opportunities for our students to positively affect our local and global communities!

“As a recipient of an Orange County Alumni Book scholarship through the UCI Alumni Association, I am very thankful for those who choose to give to UCI on UCI giving day, making a difference in students' lives, such as mine. As a student, any financial aid is appreciated for paying for college tuition, and donors like you can make a difference in our lives.”

- Grace Peterson, 2022-2023 Orange County Alumni Chapter Book Scholar

“I had the opportunity to accept the OC Alumni Chapter Book Scholarship which helped me aid my tuition, textbooks, and other materials needed for school. This lessened some of my financial burdens and allowed me to focus more on my education and to reach for the goal of eventually becoming a business leader!"   

- Yuki Tanizaki, 2022-2023 Orange County Alumni Chapter Book Scholar

“As a recipient of the Orange County Chapter Book Scholarship, I am extremely grateful for the support of donors who make this award possible. Textbooks have become more and more expensive, and this scholarship has taken a huge burden off of my shoulders. I can spend more time pursuing my education instead of worrying about paying off textbooks each quarter.” 

- Jason Wang, 2022-2023 Orange County Alumni Chapter Book Scholar

2024 Book Scholar recipients: Arjun Dabir, Ibrahim Khan, Kaelyn Kwon and Jaiminh Park! 

Please consider making a gift of any amount to the Orange County Alumni Chapter Scholarship Fund. Your support will help make a young Anteater’s dream of a world-class education come true!
