Empowering Difference Makers

Surmounting the racial disparities in our society is a job for all of us. Helping more African Americans who want to make a difference to acquire an outstanding education empowers them to be agents of constructive, intelligent change.

BLACK ALUMNI SCHOLARSHIP FUND CAMPAIGN

Since its inception in 1983, the UC San Diego Black Alumni Scholarship Fund (BASF) has provided scholarships to attract more African American students to UCSD and enable them to excel academically. In recent years BASF has partnered with UCSD campus departments to provide academic and co-curricular enrichments to enhance the all-round abilities of our Scholars and prepare them for post-university success in their chosen fields.​

Jazzalyn Livingston is the National Program Manager for the NAACP Youth and College Division and an alumnus of the University of California, San Diego, where she double majored in Psychology, B.S. and Public Health B.S. "As a former Black Alumni Scholar, I cannot express how much this program did for me during my times as an undergraduate at UCSD. Because of the scholarship, I was able to graduate debt-free and pursue grad school and employment with a national civil rights non-profit organization without financial worries."
