Staff and Staff Dependent Scholarship Overview

The UC Davis/UCDHS Staff Assembly Scholarship Committee offers scholarships to UC Davis career staff and their dependents on both the Davis and Sacramento campuses. We are proud to administer the Kathleen Moore Endowment Scholarship, Latino Staff and Faculty Association Scholarship, Margene E. Orzalli Endowment Scholarship; UC Davis Retirees' Association Career Enhancement Award, Staff Assembly Scholarships, and Larry N. Vanderhoef Staff Scholarship. This year, we awarded 20 scholarships, totaling nearly $29,000, to the individuals below.
 
Through this program, career staff receive funding to continue their education in Associate, Bachelor, or graduate degree programs at community colleges, state colleges, universities (public or private) and professional schools as well as to pursue professional certificates for personal/professional development.

The Staff Scholarship Program is funded by generous endowments, sales of Staff Pins, and TGFS sponsorship sales conducted by the UC Davis and UCDHS Staff Assemblies. Annual award amounts vary depending on the number of qualified applicants and the amount of available funds.

Please contact the Staff Assembly Office at (530) 752-0988 if you have any questions.
