Graduate Student Support

History and Purpose:

This scholarship is used to support CHASS students. CHASS prides itself on its commitment to undergraduate education. The College seeks to help undergraduate students develop stronger faculties of criticism, judgment, and imagination; to better understand the world; to communicate more clearly; and to consider values. CHASS offers more than 50 disciplinary and interdisciplinary majors. The College also can arrange an individually tailored major for a student who finds that well-defined personal academic goals can be reached through the resources and interested faculty at UCR but for which no suitable major is offered.

UCR's June Commencement ceremonies highlighted CHASS undergraduate student achievement in obtaining their academic degree in their respective major. For the 2002-2003 academic year, CHASS accounts for 52% of UCR's undergraduate conferred degrees, totaling 1413 graduates from UCR's total conferred degrees of 2789 students. In addition, Business Administration, which collaboratively works with CHASS's Pre-Business program, conferred 700 degrees consisting of 23% of the total conferred degrees for the 2002-2003 academic year. Including Business Administration, CHASS total conferred degrees for the 2002-2003 academic year was 75% of UCR's total undergraduate population.

Selection and Guidelines:

The Humanities Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences to deserving students.
