Crowdfund UC Davis thanks all of the donors who gave to this important project in February. This campaign has closed, but you can still support our program by making a donation.
The African and African American Alumni Association (5A) scholarship fund provides students an opportunity to thrive at UC Davis by providing financial support to prioritize their health, coursework, and families. The 5A scholarship is awarded to students committed to supporting the African, African American, and the Black community at UC Davis, promoting pathways of success for historically underrepresented and marginalized people.
Throughout the year, 5A collaborates on events and opportunities that gather our community and raise funds for the Jazz and Wine Social, Black Family Day, and Black Graduation. This Crowdfund is an opportunity to direct more funds towards scholarships as we raise awareness through events and bring attention to the needs of our students.
Currently, we administer 1-2 scholarships, and we hope this will further fund undergraduate students, emulating the aspirations and Blackjoy that our alumni strive to pass down to the next generation of Aggie leaders and scholars.
The higher attrition rates of underrepresented students in undergraduate programs across the country can incur many costs. The 5A scholarship is a pivotal moment for success, ensuring they remain and prosper in their program. Your donation to the 5A Scholarship Fund in any amount will ensure students have an opportunity to support their education.
As an added bonus for donating, all contributors to the Crowdfund will be invited to a virtual wine tasting with 5A alumni vintners and learn about their experience at UC Davis and as a winemaker.
