UC Santa Cruz: The real change could be you

You’re here because you are passionate about elevating students’ educational possibilities, strengthening their well-being, and generating momentum for social mobility.  We invite you to join us in helping to change our students’ trajectories. Together, we can position our students to meet our world’s biggest challenges.

We will continue to refresh ways you can support student success at UC Santa Cruz. We invite you to check back for additional ways you can make an impact on the educational experience and life paths of Banana Slugs.

If you have any questions or need additional information on how to support the Student Success Initiative please contact Marissa Fullum-Campbell or Molly Sims.

“This scholarship impacted my academic life/research in that it allowed me to support myself on my journey of uplifting, serving, and growing with my communities. Being a first generation college student comes with many challenges and this scholarship helped me in overcoming some of those challenges.”
