Giving

Your Contribution Changes Everything

Scholarships gave first-generation anthropology student Haley Henson (class of 2019) the invaluable gift of time, allowing her to work fewer hours and devote herself to completing her University Honors capstone project. After graduation, she plans to earn a master's degree in architecture and attend law school.

"I hope to one day pay forward this kindness to other students who dream of reimagining and recreating their world." 

- Haley Henson (class of 2019)

UC Riverside is among the top 10 public research universities with the most low-income students (Brookings Institute, 2017) and we are No. 1 in the nation for Pell Grant performance (Washington Monthly, 2016). That means that we admit students who meet high standards, but aren’t necessarily wealthy. Our students go on to contribute greatly to the public good. Don’t let money be what stands in their way.

Support the At Home in the World Student Award Fund

The CHASS At Home in the World Student Award Fund was created by CHASS Dean Milagros Peña and Professor Fred Hamann to help students decrease the gap between their own financial resources and the total cost of an international experience. The fund, designated for CHASS undergraduate students with financial need, is designed to assist students with the financial costs of international travel.

For Peña, international experiences can provide a "profound transformation of who you are as an intellectual and a person." Ultimately, her desire for students is to give them the opportunity to gain "knowledge of other cultures and experiences in other cultures, and to be someone who can graduate with a real sense of more than just the world in which we were born in and grew up in, but knowing more about the world that we’re part of, beyond these borders called the United States."

Endow a Chair

Create Space for the Instructors You Want to Champion

When you endow a chair, you create a fund that will support a professorship or faculty position. It carves out a place for the kind of teachers you want to step forward and lead. The annual interest on your endowment provides chairs with critical resources for teaching, traveling, research, and growth.

Endowing a chair:
  • Ensures brilliance in teaching and research — right now and in the future
  • Perpetuates a donor's name and permanently aligns it with a commitment to educational excellence
  • Enables CHASS to attract, retain and honor distinguished academic leaders, who profoundly enrich our students’ lives

If you are interested in endowing a chair, contact us at (951) 827-4290.
