Oakes Student Scholarships

Oakes College Student Project Funds

Oakes College has a modest fund to support Oakes students in the following four areas: (1) academic research; (2) creative initiatives; (3) artistic endeavors; (4) special events

Any registered Oakes undergraduate student is eligible to submit an application for funding. Funds can only be given to the specific Oakes student applicant for expenses which the Oakes student paid. All funding decisions will be based on the merit of the research/project, the extent to which the research/project will benefit the college and/or university community, and the available funds.  Here are some examples of projects that were funded in the 2015-2016 academic year.

Deadlines are as follows:

Fall quarter: October 19, 2018
Winter quarter: January 25, 2019
Spring quarter: April 19, 2019

NOTE: Funding requests for events sponsored by registered student organizations should be directed to Core Council funding through Student Organization Advising and Resources (SOAR).

Please direct any questions about the proposal and award process to the College Academic Programs Coordinator <oakescapc@ucsc.edu>.
