Your financial contribution to Graduate Studies enables us to recruit and recognize exceptionally talented students who are essential to UC Davis research and teaching, regardless of background. Your gift provides tools, mentoring, resources, and access to community that ensure our students have the support they need to excel as they balance their personal lives with their academic aspirations.

In addition to supporting tools, mentoring and student resources you also enable us to deliver an inclusive, world-class experience to graduate students, so they can make a difference at UC Davis and beyond

Your support also allows us to deliver an inclusive, world-class experience to graduate students, so they can make a difference at UC Davis and beyond.

There are many ways you can support UC Davis’ graduate community this Give Day. 

Gifts to the Graduate Student Emergency Fund provide immediate support for graduate students across all disciplines, including interdisciplinary programs, who have an urgent, unexpected expense due to circumstances beyond their control. 

Supporting the Graduate Student Pantry Fund helps provide fresh and perishable foods and toiletries directly to members of the graduate student community.

The Guardians Professions Program specifically funds efforts to grow and support former foster youth gain admissions and success in graduate school.
