Supporting UC Santa Cruz

UC Santa Cruz students

As a public research university, UC Santa Cruz receives financial support from the state of California. But it is private support from the campus's many generous donors that helps ensure we maintain academic and research excellence. And it is private support that provides many UCSC students with access to that excellence through scholarships, fellowships, and program funding.

The Campaign for UC Santa Cruz, is building resources for future. It is a multi-year effort with an ambitious goal of raising $300 million. University Relations staff members play key roles directly and indirectly in the Campaign.
