The UCSB Emeriti Association has a long history of supporting undergraduate students. Thanks to the generosity of our members, we are pleased to announce the establishment of the UCSB Emeriti Association Scholarship. This Scholarship, in the amount of $2500, will be awarded annually to an incoming Promise Scholar. Promise Scholars are high achieving students with diverse academic goals who are admitted to UCSB on their own merits through the usual application procedure. They are first generation students with high financial need, who come from under-resourced high schools in California. A committee of Emeriti Association Board members will select the Scholarship recipient. By awarding the Scholarship, the Emeriti Association is able to help a meritorious student and at the same time support the campus’s goal of furthering social justice and inclusion.
