Investing in Tomorrow’s Leaders
Whether to attend college was never an issue for Yahaira Martinez ’12— the question was how. So when a letter arrived announcing her selection for a Chancellor Achievement Award, the Galt native realized her dreams would come true.
“When I was accepted to UC Davis, the first thing my parents and I thought about was how could we possibly pay for everything,” said Martinez, now a second-year student majoring in managerial economics and psychology. “When I received this award, we knew that college was going to be a reachable goal and that I would be the first in my family to have this educational opportunity. My family and I are so grateful to the donors who made that possible.”
Having the financial support of a scholarship or fellowship can make the difference for students in these challenging economic times and much of the funding for those sources comes from private gifts to the university. For example, the Chancellor Achievement Awards are supported by gifts from the UC Davis Annual Fund.
