The University of California is committed to keeping the doors to higher education open for all who work hard and dream big.

That's why we launched Project You Can, a systemwide effort to focus ongoing fundraising at all 10 UC campuses on a united goal: raise $1 billion for student support through 2014. We have raised $901.4 million as of October 2013. To succeed, we need your help. Your donations will fund the scholarships and fellowships that help keep UC accessible and affordable.
