Triton 5K Scholarship

Triton 5K Scholarship

Join us for the 25th Annual Triton 5K! All runners, walkers, and supporters are welcome!

You can still take part in UC San Diego’s annual Triton 5K by supporting scholarships today! Since 1996, the Triton 5K has raised more than $4 million in undergraduate scholarship support, benefiting more than 1,000 motivated and ambitious students.

The event was founded by former UC San Diego Chancellor Robert C. Dynes to rally the campus in support of undergraduate students. Most recently, Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla helped to push past the $3 million fundraising mark, growing the event to include 3,000 participants and volunteers. Even during the pandemic, the Triton 5K ran on with a virtual run and app. The Triton 5K is an important campus tradition with a legacy that will last long into the future. Now, in its 25th year, the Triton 5K continues to expand scholarships, ensuring that learning is accessible and affordable for all.

Your scholarship gift is the link between a student’s capacity to succeed and access to success. It can change everything. We invite you to open possibilities for students through the gift of a UC San Diego education — a gift that is life-changing and lifelong. Together, we are inspiring and creating the next generation of innovators and leaders.

Wherever you are in the world, it’s now easier than ever to make a difference in the lives of our students. Give to Triton 5K Scholarships today!
