In the UConn College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, we know that a well-rounded education filled with creativity and diversity of thought prepares students for the jobs of the future.
And there's no better place to get that than CLAS.
Our College touches every student at UConn, whether in Freshman Writing or Senior Year Experience. They go on to run companies, serve the public, volunteer, get involved in their communities, and make a lasting impact on our world.
Your gift to support scholarships in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will give UConn undergraduates the resources they need to pursue a quality education, discover and nurture their passions, and realize their potential in our constantly changing world.
So, on this inaugural Giving Day, please support our fantastic students and the good they'll go on to do in our world. Whether they're studying biology or British literature, economics or English, physics or French, we thank you for your investment in their future.
“At UConn, there are a lot of opportunities to create organizations, get involved in research, and be a leader on campus. It’s been helpful to have scholarship support so that I can explore these options, and not have to work multiple jobs to pay for school.”

Physiology and neurobiology major
“I was born in Guayaquil, Ecuador. My parents wanted to give me a better opportunity for education and raise me in a better environment, so we moved here when I was really young. Receiving the scholarship has been meaningful because I’m more able to afford college now. It pushes me to keep going. It also brought a lot of joy to my parents; they see that it was worth it to come here.”

Psychological sciences and Spanish major;
“UConn has definitely expanded my horizons. I took a course on U.S. homelessness; it is the reason why I added human rights as a double major. I also took a class on the Syrian Refugee Crisis that got me into my research. I plan on going to law school after I graduate to be an international human rights lawyer.”
