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 13, 2017
Winter quarter: January 26, 2018
Spring quarter: April 13, 2018

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>.

Scholarships for DACA renewal fees The Mission Asset Fund and Weingart Foundation will provide $495 grants to cover the renewal application fee for students whose DACA permits expire on or before March 5, 2018 and who are applying for a renewal. Grants will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, so students should submit applications as soon as possible — even if they have not yet completed the DACA renewal application — so that funds can be made available to them before the Oct. 5, 2017 renewal deadline. The online application requires only that students answer a short questionnaire and provide proof of their DACA work permit. The application can be found here: http://lc4daca.org/
