Get Involved

When you build a connection with UCEAP, you’re making a difference for our community - and there are countless ways to do it. You can volunteer to be a scholarship reviewer, become a mentor for recent graduates, nominate an alum for our distinguished alumni award, attend a networking event, reconnect with fellow alumni, or support current students with a donation to our scholarship program.


Become a scholarship reader or UCEAP Connect ambassador. Use your experience of studying abroad to help review scholarship applications or become an ambassador and inspire students and alumni with photos and stories from your own time abroad. 

Attend an event

From virtual trivia events to our UCEAP Presents lecture series, the UCEAP alumni team hosts a variety of events online and in California. There is something for everyone. Brose the UCEAP Alumni Calendar to see what is going on this month. 

Be a superfan

Nominate a friend or colleague for one of our alumni awards. Our Distinguished Alumni are world-changers, and bring distinction to themselves and UC through their professional and civic achievements.

Make a gift 

Support from donors like you shapes everything we do here at UCEAP. Your gift enhances the student experience by providing necessary scholarship and program support.
