“Todos Somos, Somos Uno: We Are All, We Are One.”

Latinx Heritage Month gives extra recognition to the rich heritage, history, cultures, and contributions of our Latinx community.

We invite you to invest in our efforts to strengthen comunidad as part of the celebration of Latinx Heritage Month.

Each fund celebrates our Latinx/Chicanx community and moves us closer to our goal of becoming a Hispanic-serving Institution. Your gift builds a campus where UC San Diego students achieve their academic and professional dreams while becoming changemakers in their field.

Latinx/Chicanx Academic Excellence Initiative

The Latinx/Chicanx Academic Excellence Initiative is designed to ensure our student population can succeed. With core values such as equity, success and student-centeredness, this initiative expands services that attract and support a diverse faculty, staff and student community on campus. The initiative will direct resources toward programs and activities that emphasize and elevate the Latinx experience for the whole campus.


The Jorge Rios Scholarship

The Jorge Rios Scholarship award supports UC San Diego Chicanx/Latinx Staff Association members for any training activity to develop their full professional potential and to prepare for advancement opportunities or career changes within the UC system.


Raza Resource Centro

The Raza Resource Centro offers activities, events and resources to connect students, staff, faculty and alumni. The Centro is open to everyone, and strives to emphasize and foster the access, retention and graduation of Latinx/Chicanx students as well as create strong connections with our surrounding community.


Madrinas and Padrinos Endowment Scholarship
