Support Us

UC San Diego has created an opportunity to help provide scholarships and financial assistance in the future for students. We are targeting those underserved students who are the first generation in their families to attend college. Won't you join us and those who have already contributed and continue to contribute to this effort? Your donations are tax-deductable and will go a long way in ensuring that future generations have the opportunity to participate in the college experience.

How You Can Help

There are several ways you can contribute to our programming efforts:

  1. Donate your airline points to sponsor a scholarship student's travel.  If you have points on Southwest Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines or Alaska Airlines, then consider sponsoring a student's flight.
  2. Sponsor a student to attend the GELS program.
  3. Donate to the Academic Connections endowment.

Please contact Dr. Edward Abeyta for further information.
