NOW: You do not need to be associated with the University to be a member. All are welcome!

If you are new to the community or to UFC, we invite you to join any of our Newcomers activities to get acquainted with our area and to meet other women.

2021 - 2022 DONATION GOAL: $30,000

We made it!

Thanks to your generous donations on
The Big Day of Giving, we've made $30,082
this year. THANK YOU!

What Can a $4,000 Scholarship Do?

  • Help pay for tuition

  • Pay lab fees

  • Provide necessities such as rent and food

  • Purchase books and technology

  • Provide a huge boost in self-confidence, which helps the student persevere on their path of achievement

  • Most importantly, save the student hours of work. At $15.00 per hour, it would take approximately 267 hours to earn $4,000. That’s a lot of time that could be spent studying! 

Thanks to generous donations from members and others, UFC was able to give nine talented UC Davis students scholarships of $4,000 each in 2021.
