The Affiliates of UCR

UC Riverside Affiliates


Founded in 1970, the Affiliates of UCR is a community organization dedicated to raising money for student scholarships and fostering connections between UCR and the City of Riverside.

Each year, with the money we raise through on-campus luncheons and donations from members of the Riverside community, we award scholarships to hard-working, well-deserving UCR students. We strive to serve an often overlooked population — students with GPAs in the 2.5 to 3.5 range who have graduated from high schools in Riverside and San Bernardino.

Our goal is to help local students with obvious academic and professional promise attain their education and career goals by making their financial burden a little lighter. Last year, we awarded four scholarships, and the year prior, we awarded five. But we can only do so with the help of donors like you, as your generous donations will fund the scholarships we award this year. Please join the cause and make your gift today!

Also, come check out our bi-monthly luncheons to meet and hear from the scholarship recipients and enjoy presentations from award-winning UCR faculty. The luncheons are held every other month at the UCR Alumni and Visitor Center.
