Chancellor’s Centennial Scholars Match Program adds 50 percent to value of endowed gifts for graduate student fellowships between $250,000 and $1 million
UCLA College is pleased to announce an exceptional opportunity for friends and alumni to expand the impact of their gifts.
UCLA Chancellor Gene Block has created the Chancellor’s Centennial Scholars Match program. Through June 30, 2018 — or until matching funds are exhausted — the UCLA Chancellor’s Centennial Scholars Match program will add 50 percent to the value of all qualifying gifts for endowed graduate fellowships. With the Chancellor’s Match, a $250,000 gift automatically becomes $375,000 to support high-achieving graduate students. A $1 million fellowship gift automatically becomes $1.5 million.
Endowed fellowships are vital for students in the College. They attract diverse and talented applicants who want to take advantage of the rich education we offer. They also help the College to provide the access and excellence that are our hallmarks as the academic heart of one of the top public research universities in the world. In addition, endowed gifts remain intact in perpetuity, giving donors a permanent legacy at UCLA.
