Your Unrestricted Support Provides Funding for Graduate Student Fellowships
Donations are sought for graduate fellowships that help recruit and support superior first year BMSE graduate students. These graduate fellowships are essential to the BMSE Program's ability to offer the unique learning environment for which they are known, and are the sole resource for funding outstanding graduate students during their first year. The BMSE Program fosters interdisciplinary research and therefore first year BMSE graduate students rotate through faculty laboratories before selecting a research advisor. After their first year rotations, each graduate student is supported by grant funds (made available by their research advisor) for the remainder of their academic tenure at UC Santa Barbara. The generous support from alumni and friends enables BMSE to recruit top graduate students and maintain research and educational excellence within the Program.
Annual contributions of $1,000 or more qualify you for membership in the Chancellor's Council at the University of California, Santa Barbara. UC Santa Barbara is an internationally recognized University for teaching and research, known for its interdisciplinary programs and innovative research. It is consistently ranked among the top American universities for the impact of its research programs in both the sciences and humanities. Your gifts to the Biomolecular Science & Engineering Graduate Program will help maintain UC Santa Barbara's pursuit of research excellence in the years to come.
