Dean’s Undergraduate Awards for Excellence

In fall 2004, the Division of Physical Sciences in collaboration with UCSD’s Annual Fund established the Dean’s Undergraduate Awards for Excellence to recognize undergraduate students in the majors of Chemistry & Biochemistry, Mathematics and Physics who have demonstrated academic excellence and promise as researchers. Started in October 2004, the program provides $1,000 awards to at least 20 outstanding juniors and seniors each year.

Funding for the first 20 award recipients was provided entirely by alumni donors. Funding for future awards still needs to be raised from alumni, parents, and friends of the university. As the program’s resources grow year-to-year, an endowment will be established to ensure the recognition of UCSD Physical Sciences students for generations to come.

Gifts of any amount can make an impact. To learn more, contact Carol Spencer at (858) 822-3258 or cspencer@ucsd.edu.
