Undergraduate research is a transformational experience. It allows students to learn at a higher level, build relationships with faculty and community partners and explore areas of interest while making substantive contributions. The Undergraduate Research Centers (URCs) foster self-discovery and elevate the UCLA experience for all who participate.
In celebration of our undergraduate researchers, faculty mentors and URC staff, we have set a goal of 200 participants to join our giving campaign. That means by making a gift of any size, you can help us fulfill our mission of promoting, developing and celebrating undergraduate research, ensuring we can provide for students seeking to financially support themselves and conduct research simultaneously.
Students, now is the time to support your fellow undergraduate researchers and show your Bruin pride. By paying it forward for the next generation of students, you will receive some great perks! Now that we're back on campus, celebrate by showing off your URW merch. By making a gift of $35, you can receive your URW t-shirt to commemorate your time as an undergraduate researcher. Also, seniors who make a gift of $250, will receive a philanthropy cord to wear at commencement.
All gifts will directly support undergraduate student researchers. The funds raised will provide scholarship support, as well as programmatic support to fund initiatives like events, symposia and field research.
