As UCSD deals with massive funding cuts from the state, we are becoming more and more dependent on gifts from alumni, family, friends and other faculty. Sixth College prides itself in providing a small college experience comparable to some of the best elite private colleges. Our intimate college setting within a large, prestigious research university provides the best of both worlds. While at UCSD, students can hear lectures from Nobel Prize winners and other renowned faculty while also receiving the enormous benefits of personal academic advising, a common curriculum and common residence halls.
Sixth College hosts many events, programs, and spaces to help students feel welcome.
Scholarships help bridge the gap between college expenses and financial aid, and can be the deciding factor for whether a student attends UC San Diego – or even if he or she will attend college at all. You can transform a talented student’s life by making a scholarship gift of any size. Donations made to the Scholarship Fund go toward programs like the Sixth College Study Abroad Scholarship.
