History and Purpose:

The UCR Alumni Association recognizes academic excellence through its program of freshman and continuing student scholarships. Since the program began in 1976, the Alumni Association has continually responded to the rising costs of education by increasing the number and amount of scholarships awarded. The Alumni Association also proudly recognizes alumni and other campus leaders who have contributed significantly to UCR, their community, and society, honoring the efforts of these individuals who mirror the University's tradition of excellence while bringing distinction to the campus.

Each year, the Alumni Association awards multiple, merit-based scholarships to freshmen from California high schools. To be a recipient of the Alumni Freshman Scholarship, the student should show a superior academic background and strong test scores.
