Recreation Scholarships

Recreation allocated $8,780 total in student scholarships during Academic Year 2018/19

Stay tuned for more information regarding scholarship applications for Fall 2019.

We want every UCSC student to be able to join a Recreation activity. Thanks to fundraising through the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour in Santa Cruz and the support of individual donors, each year over 100 students receive Recreation scholarships to make this a reality.
