Help Students Build a Future
Scholarships change lives. UC San Diego is about to launch the Latinx Academic Excellence Initiative to increase enrollment of Latino, Chicano and Hispanic students by expanding educational and financial opportunities. Scholarships are a vital part of this initiative. Your support will inspire the next generation of Latinx thinkers, business owners and civic leaders who will influence our community, our nation, and our world.
Alejandra Belalcázar ’13 earned a bachelor’s degree from UC San Diego in urban studies and planning. Scholarship support gave her the means to pursue international issues like sustainability, social justice and environmental preservation. After graduation, Alejandra traveled to Thailand and Laos on volunteer service projects and now she has her dream job as an urban planner at the Center for Sustainable Energy in San Diego.
For young Latinx men and women of great promise and outstanding ability, a scholarship can help them feel at home on campus while they develop the skills and insights necessary to take on global challenges. Without her scholarship, Alejandra says she would never have had the confidence to embark on her exciting career path.
Please make your gift today and help students like Alejandra build a future that is anything but ordinary.
