Recreation Scholarships

Winter 2018 scholarship allocations are complete.

Apply now for Spring 2018 Scholarships. Sunday, April 2 is the deadline for priority consideration. However, applications may continue to be reviewed after this date.

We want every UCSC student to be able to join a Recreation activity. Thanks to the support of the UCSC Colleges, individual donors and unique fundraising events, each year nearly 100 students receive financial support to make this a reality.

Scholarship Guidelines:

  • If you are a student in EOP, please apply to the EOP Measure 68 Access Scholarship. Go here to apply.
  • You may receive up to $100 per academic year.
  • You must use the scholarship with the quarter that it is granted.
  • The scholarship is non-transferable.
  • The scholarship is only for Recreation Department activities.
  • AB 540 students are eligible to receive Recreation scholarships.
  • Scholarship decisions are made once per quarter on the day before Recreation Registration. Recreation Registration is typically within one week of the first day of classes.
  • Each quarter, priority consideration is given to applications submitted two days prior to Recreation Registration.
  • If awarded a scholarship, you will receive an email with a scholarship coupon code. When enrolling online, you will enter that coupon code on the payment page in ActiveNet. ActiveNet is our online registration site.
  • You must still register for the activity through ActiveNet, and some activities fill up quickly! Receiving a scholarship does not guarantee space in your requested activity.
  • Please contact the Recreation office if you've missed the scholarship application quarterly deadline and need financial assistance.
