The UCSD Black Alumni Fund Scholarship is $10,000 in annual increments of $2,500. This unique, renewable scholarship is offered in recognition of an outstanding academic record and commitment to community service. The scholarship may be used toward tuition, books, and/or living expenses.
The Scholarship application deadline is midnight March 29 2023. Students who have been admitted to UC San Diego and have identified themselves on the UC application as Black or African American will receive a BASF invitation to apply and a link to the application form. This invitation will be sent shortly after notification from the Admissions Office that you have been admitted to UC San Diego for the Fall of 2023.
Your application will be reviewed by the BASF selection committee, and you will be notified around mid-April if you have received a scholarship offer. Please note, receipt of the scholarship is contingent upon your decision to attend UC San Diego and your commitment to participate in BASF enrichment activities (as described below) including applying to live on-campus during your first and second years. You’re invited to apply today!
The scholarship is worth much more than $10,000 because, in addition to the financial award, BASF Scholarship Program includes invaluable academic enrichments preferred by high-achieving students like you, such as:
– For students admitted to the Jacobs School of Engineering, this means the JSOE Summer Engineering Institute (see “for Engineering students only”section below for additional details);
– For admitted students in all other majors, the Summer Bridge The program will be available, but you must submit a timely Summer Bridge application;
Our intention is not merely to have you select UC San Diego, it is to ensure that you thrive and develop to your highest potential as a member of the Triton and BASF Families. We want you to graduate having benefitted from all that this
the world-class university has to offer, prepared for your highest aspirations for graduate or professional school, employment, or entrepreneurial opportunities.
We look forward to seeing you soon at UC San Diego.
Vice Chair, BASF
You will be joining a community of nearly 200 current BASF Scholars at UC San Diego. BASF brings its Scholars together several times each year. All Scholars are expected, as part of the Scholarship’s renewal requirements, to participate in the BASF Program’s enrichment activities and maintain at least a 2.7 GPA.
For BASF Scholarship applicants admitted to the Jacobs School of Engineering: Please note, receipt of the scholarship is contingent upon our review of your BASF application, your decision to attend UC San Diego and live on-campus during your first and second years, and your commitment to participate in JSOE and BASF enrichment activities. The BASF Scholarship application deadline is midnight March 29, 2023. You’re invited to apply today!
Particularly important is your participation in the JSOE Summer Engineering Institute (SEI) for which financial aid will be available provided you make a timely 2022-2023 FAFSA application for summer financial aid to the UC San Diego Financial Aid Office. You may contact Michelle Ojeda, firstname.lastname@example.org directly for details. It is our intent to provide additional BASF scholarship support to supplement the financial aid award to make your participation in SEI cost-free.
JSOE also offers participation in its IDEA Scholars Program. The BASF Scholarship Program also considers that JSOE program to be important for the success of all BASF Scholars who are engineering majors. Therefore, your timely application to become an IDEA Scholar is one of our BASF Scholarship requirements as well.
