A Message from the President
UCI TOWN AND GOWN
UCI Town and Gown was formed in 1965; and we have continuously supported students and programs at the world-renowned University of California, Irvine ever since.
Your continued membership and support for UCI Town and Gown is very sincerely appreciated and goes a long way toward helping provide funds for our scholarship recipients. Town and Gown is also a great place to meet new people, experience fun interest groups and share in intellectual learning experiences. We hope we see the light of the eventual end to the pandemic and are slowly and carefully trying to resume our normal activities.
UCI Town and Gown offers a choice of many interest groups, and also the joy and satisfaction of helping deserving UCI students to finance their education. I have had the opportunity for several years now to serve on our University Relations and Scholarships Selection Board (URSS), and the experience of helping to select the recipients has been very fulfilling. Our criteria are a bit unusual as we can only consider students who, for a variety of difficult personal reasons, have experienced at least a five-year break in pursuing their academic and career goals. This year we have been able to award $40,000 in eight $5,000 scholarships.
To learn more about our interest groups and programs look for our newsletter on our website: www.ucitownandgown.com, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. “Act as if what you do makes a difference. IT DOES.” (William James)
