Give Tue Scholarships

This campaign ended on November 29, 2017, but you can still make a gift to University of California, Merced by clicking here!


UC Merced is building the future in the heart of California — one gift at a time. At an institution where 9 out of 10 students receive some form of financial aid, every donor, every dollar, every day, makes an impact. Help us as we aim to surpass 1,000 donors in a day!

Even the best and brightest students can have their dreams derailed by financial concerns. Scholarships can help students avoid having to work multiple jobs that distract from their education, and they can remove a barrier to entry that prevents some students from going to college at all. From the Dream Act Scholarship to the Guardian Scholars Scholarship to scholarships supporting children of UC Merced staff members, these funds give you a number of ways to help make a difference in our students’ lives.

Thanks to a generous gift from Foster Poultry Farms, your gift to scholarships is eligible for a 3:1 match (up to a maximum of $180,000 matched) and also contribute to our overall Give Tue UC Merced campaign. On this annual day of giving, let’s come TUEgether and show our campus and our community that we are truly invested in UC Merced. Give now, share your story using #GiveTueUCM, and challenge others to help us reach our goal of 1,000 donors in a day! Will You Give Tue UC Merced?
