About the UC San Diego Parents Fund

The Parents Fund is a financial resource used to support student-centric initiatives that promote learning, encourage personal development and well-being, and facilitate a strong sense of community on campus. 

Each year, the Parents Council allocates funds to innovative programs and services that are aligned with the university’s mission and allow for student exploration and discovery in the pursuit of a truly comprehensive education. The designation of funds is determined on the merit of student applications and for priority initiatives determined by the Parents Council.
