Thank you for your interest in attending UC San Diego and for seeking information about the UCSD Black Alumni Scholarship Program.
The UCSD Black Alumni Fund Scholarship of $5,000 is awarded in annual increments of $2,500 over a two-year period. 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 May 9, 2023. Transfer 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 Office of Admissions 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-May if you have received a scholarship offer. Please note, receipt of the scholarship is contingent upon your decision to attend UC San Diego, live on campus (unless an exception is granted), and participate in BASF enrichment activities (as described in the blue column on the right). You are invited to apply today.
YOUR SUCCESS IS OUR GOAL: 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 worldclass 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.
