Providing world-class learning opportunities and support for your student
The unrestricted Parents Fund helps us educate the next generation of leaders by offering students like yours transformative learning experiences and opportunities that shape their future—and ours. The fund does this by supporting key signature programs:
Chancellor’s Fellows awards allow early-career faculty to pursue research or creative work that often is exploratory or groundbreaking in nature, involving students in hands-on, exciting learning experiences of a lifetime.
Chancellor’s Achievement Awards have gifted more than 800 scholarships to outstanding first-generation California students. These awards open higher education to students who otherwise might not have had the opportunity.
The Parents Fund supports programs allowing students hands-on learning and research opportunities with world-class faculty—and opens doors to a more diverse student body at UC Davis.
The Parents Fund also allows university leadership to respond quickly to emerging student needs. Last spring, the Parents Fund allowed Chancellor May to provide 600 loaner laptops to students when classes moved online in response to COVID-19.
Support research and teaching excellence and greater opportunities for all students by giving to the Parents Fund.
