A Message from the President
Thank you for visiting the UCI Town and Gown website.
As you read about us, I hope you will consider joining Town and Gown and help us provide scholarships to deserving students. Each year, our Scholarship Selection Board reviews applications, interviews the candidates, selects the finalists and determines the awardees. All of our applicants have had a 5 year or more break in their education and have overcome a personal challenge. Each student is striving to complete their education goals and has plans on how they intend to give back to their community.
ALL of the money raised goes directly to these worthy students.
For the 2016-2017 student scholarships, we raised over $28,000. This money comes from attendance at our events by members and their guests, participation by our members in our various interest groups, our endowments and by direct gifts generously given by our members.
Information on how you can join us can be found on the membership page. Not a joiner, you can still make a difference by giving directly to our scholarship program. Details for direct giving is available on the contribute page.
We have a wide variety of Interest Groups from Happy Hour in Historic OC to Plein air painting. You can find out more by looking at our Activities/Interest Groups page. Come to an event and check us out. With your membership and support we can impact the lives of many students. I hope you will join UCI Town and Gown and help us make a difference.
You can also find us on Facebook and Instagram. Look for UCI Town and Gown.
