Fund:

Mark and Pamela Rubin Endowed Scholarship Fund

Department:

Financial Aid D01171

Purpose:

Undergraduate Student Support

History and Purpose:

Mark and Pamela Rubin's generosity has touched many aspects of UCR. Through their generosity they have created endowments for research in the Biomedical Sciences, and student support in genetics, environmental engineering, and the humanities and arts. Pamela Rubin is a Trustee of the UC Riverside Foundation Board.

The Rubins share a deep belief in the value of education. Mark noted, "We feel that without knowledge there can be no advancement for humanity."

In 1998, the Rubins established the Mark and Pamela Rubin Scholarship for UCR students from Mission Grove, a Riverside neighborhood developed by Mark's building and development business, Regional Properties.

Selection and Guidelines:

The Rubin Scholarship is awarded to a graduating (or recently graduated) high school senior who, at the time of application, resides in the Mission Grove area of Riverside. Eligible students must demonstrate financial need and scholarly accomplishment. If students are equally rated, it is the donors' preference that UCR's Financial Aid Office gives the award to the student with greater need.

Continuing UCR students may apply between December and March 2 using the Continuing Student Scholarship application. Further details are sent to undergraduates via Webmail in December.
