The Chicanx and Latinx Engineers and Scientists Society (CALESS) of UC Davis is a student organization that is dedicated to supporting undergraduate students pursuing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and fosters an environment where students thrive academically, professionally, and socially.
This scholarship’s purpose is to provide financial support to CALESS undergraduate students who are excelling in their pursuit of STEM majors and who are active, dedicated, and paid members of the student organization.
Originally established in 1997 as the Montoya Scholarship Fund, in 2021 the scholarship was merged with the CALESS Alumni scholarship to create an endowed fund that will expand the reach and impact of the annual awards. The scholarship is a vehicle for all alumni, awardees, and supporters of CALESS to pay it forward. The organization was founded with the basic premise of helping each other. This principle has stood the test of time and your support is needed now more than ever.
Your generous gift is a symbol of that support and is an investment in the future of our dedicated undergraduates at UC Davis that excel in the STEM fields through their participation in the Chicanx and Latinx Engineers & Scientist Society.
