The Power of Scholarships

Changing Lives
Scholarships change lives through the opportunities they provide, and that life-changing effect is felt by both recipients and donors.

At University of the Pacific, we believe in the power of scholarships to transform lives.

Scholarship funds ensure that the most deserving students have access to the outstanding academic programming, meaningful faculty relationships and supportive campus community that define a Pacific education. They increase access to college for students from traditionally underserved populations, helping them succeed long after graduation and setting them on the path to lead lives of purpose.

Scholarships also give donors the unprecedented opportunity to change lives and make dreams come true for talented students, like Joy Chiang.

Growing up, Joy Chiang dreamed of studying at Pacific’s Conservatory of Music to become a music therapist, but worried about the financial cost of a college education. Luckily, scholarships made her dream a reality.

“I have experienced firsthand the incredible power of giving. Giving is profoundly rewarding, because In the process of giving, we receive so much more.” Joy Chiang ’19
