Fueling the Engine that Drives UC Santa Barbara Forward

Give Now

UC Santa Barbara’s graduate students make an oversized impact on California and beyond once they graduate.  From your child’s eighth-grade teacher, to the scientist looking for a cure to a future ailment that you may develop, to the engineer perfecting new, more efficient modes of transport for our congested cities, our graduate students are impacting our lives every day.

UCSB’s graduate education provides these top scholars with the framework they need to make a difference in our communities.  In return, our graduate students are an integral part of our university. They teach classes, mentor undergraduates, and make discoveries.

Fuel Graduate Research

Research is a critical component of the graduate student experience.  However, some faculty do not have grants to cover these expenses. Gifts can be directed specifically to support the costs of graduate student research.  This includes travel, equipment and advanced software. Learn more about the Research Accelerator, a special matching gift program aimed at propelling student research forward.​

Enhance Diversity

Gifts to the fund provide comprehensive support, mentoring, and services for incoming graduate students from populations that are traditionally underrepresented in the academy.
