We invite you to join us in creating opportunities for undergraduate students to get involved in research. Your donation will increase the number of first-generation, underrepresented students to gain hands-on research experience and develop the tools necessary to be successful and become competitive candidates for graduate programs.

Your gift will go toward expanding the number of students we can assist with stipends for undergraduate research, as well as supporting programming such as tutoring to ensure academic success. One hundred percent of your gift will go to students who are not receiving financial support through other means or eligible for any STEM Diversity Programs.

Your donation will help nurture the formation of promising scientists and research scholars. It sends a statement of solidarity—the strength of our communities lies in diversity and inclusiveness, which are strong values that are fostered by our UCSC campus.

If you need assistance making a gift or have questions, contact our philanthropy team.
