Established in 1985 by three former re-entry students, Joyce Vickery, Barbara Moore, and Peggy Voss, the scholarship provides assistance to returning students, many of them single parents, who are working towards a Bachelor's degree and whose education was interrupted by two or more years. The application process is coordinated by the UCR Alumni Association.

- Reentry students over age 25, pursuing a bachelor's degree after an interruption in their education of at least two years.
- Complete application packet with transcripts and letters of recommendation
- Financial need as determined by the UCR Financial Aid Office

The scholarship application process will take place in the Winter and Spring quarters. Please visit for more information on qualifications, applications, and deadlines.
