Irene Mapanao never dreamed she would be able to attend UC Davis. She thought the cost was out of reach. Then an email arrived announcing she was the recipient of a first-year scholarship.

Support for Graduate Students Matched by Office of Graduate Studies

December 2017 - Support for graduate students is vital for ensuring that our best and brightest have the time and opportunity to grow as scholars, contribute to their fields of study, and prepare for a productive career. To grow endowed scholarships for graduate students, the Office  of Graduate Studies has established its Matching Fund for Student Support. Graduate Studies funds the payments initially while waiting for the endowed fund to grow. This provides a significant benefit to students immediately and accelerates the impact of donors’ gifts through a matching commitment. 

Read about how our alumni and faculty took advantage of this match to double their impact on graduate students.
