Promote Student Excellence at UC San Diego
A scholarship changes everything.
When Alexandria Holl ’19 applied to UC San Diego she didn’t know how she was going to pay for her education. Her doubts turned to gratitude when she heard that she had been awarded a UC San Diego scholarship.
“It brought me closer to my future,” she said – enabling her to pursue her dream of becoming a psychologist and travelling the world to help vulnerable populations get access to mental healthcare.
Sam Liu ’20 is the first person in his family to go to college and also received a UC San Diego scholarship. “My parents are unable to provide me with information on how college works, how to choose classes, what I need to do each year,” he says. “They can't share their experiences with me.” Thanks to his scholarship, Sam didn’t have to go at it alone. The mentoring and peer support available through his scholarship program put Sam on the path to attending UC San Diego’s John Muir College and earning a degree in computer science.
