The UC Davis Retirees’ Association (UCDRA) “25 for 25” scholarship endowment campaign was launched at the fall retiree meeting on October 30, 2014. The first 25 in the name stands for the UCDRA 25th anniversary and the second 25 stands for the minimum of $25,000 that is required to establish an endowment. The endowment will fund an annual scholarship to be awarded to a career staff person who is pursuing his/her education while working at UC Davis. The UCDRA has been funding a UC Davis staff scholarship from member dues since 1999. The endowment will allow dues revenue to be used for other projects.
