Supporting Students

Access to the intellectual capital at UC San Diego is increasingly out of reach for many promising young people who aspire to learn, grow and ultimately contribute.

Town & Gown members voluntarily support undergraduates by donating to student scholarships. The number of Town & Gown scholarships awarded annually has continued to increase as a result of our members' generosity. Learn more.
