Recreation Scholarships

Spring 2018 scholarship allocations are complete. Recreation allocated $8,890 total in student scholarships during Fall 2017, Winter 2018 and Spring 2018.

Scholarship applications for Fall 2018 may be submitted starting August 1. Priority consideration will be given to applications received by Sunday, September 30.

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.
