SPOP 50th Anniversary Reunion Scholarships

This project has ended, but you can still support amazing UCI initiatives by visiting give.uci.edu. Your continued support of our students, faculty and staff will ensure that UCI remains the #1 university doing the most for the American dream. Go Anteaters!

 

 

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the UCI Student Parent Orientation Program (SPOP), the SPOP reunion committee is seeking $75,000 to add to the Robert Gentry Endowed Scholarship Fund to ensure all incoming UCI freshmen are able to participate in this meaningful orientation program.

The UCI Student Parent Orientation Program (SPOP)  is an incredibly impactful experience shared across almost all generations of Anteaters. This comprehensive 2-day, 1-night orientation for freshmen sets incoming students up for success by providing academic advising, class registration, information on important student resources and services, social activities, and many opportunities to make friends prior to the start of the academic year.  The program aims to help students find a home at UCI and to enhance their comfort in being their authentic selves.

While the program is mandatory, it is not always affordable for all of our incoming freshmen. Our effort to raise an additional $75,000 toward the Robert Gentry Endowed Scholarship Fund will increase access to this program for students in need of financial assistance for many years to come.

When we are at our best, we provide so much more than an orientation. We give people a space where they can be unapologetically themselves, sometimes for the first time. What a gift to be able to be who we really are. Your generous commitment to this program will ensure that countless Anteaters and their families will benefit from this unique and meaningful program for years to come. Thank you for your support!
