Outreach funding will be changing in the fall of 2023. More information coming soon.

Welcome to Outreach Funding!

The ASUCR Outreach Coordinator in conjunction with the VP of Finance provides oversight of the development and operation of Outreach Allocation Funds at UC Riverside and works to ensure fair distribution and adequate use of funds. 


Student Initiated Academic Preparation funds are made available from the California State budget legislation. The purpose of the Outreach grant is to fund student-led academic preparation activities, and increase the educational capacity of California schools and educational opportunities for students from economically disadvantages backgrounds. Outreach events funded by the outreach grant must be specifically geared for California elementary, middle, high school, and transfer students, with the goal of having those students enroll in an institution of higher education.
