Help Build Support for Engineering
Bourns College of Engineering (BCOE), one of our nation's top-50 public engineering schools, provides life-changing learning experiences for a highly diverse population of future engineers. Many of our students are first in their family to attend college and more than 40% of our undergraduates are Pell grant recipients. Investing in BCOE pays off. Upon graduation, BCOE student receive the highest average starting salaries of any degree program at UCR. BCOE contributes significantly to UCR being recognized as the number one university for social mobility. Will you join us in building transformational engineering programs to enhance the lives of our students, their families, and their communities?

College of Engineering Scholarship Fund
Secures the educational future of our diverse students, of which more than 40% are Pell Grant eligible.
National Society of Black Engineers Endowed Fund
In partnership with the Council for the Advancement of Black Engineers (CABE) and the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), this new endowed fund will provide stable, long-term support for the activities of the NSBE chapter at BCOE.
Gifts to the Dean’s Innovation Fund have an immediate impact on the success of our students. Thank you for considering a gift and for your continued support of BCOE.
Kawai Tam Fund
Join us in honoring Professor Kawai Tam’s retirement from the Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering by helping to establish the Kawai Tam Professional Development Fund that will provide support to the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering for expenses related to student design competitions and professional development activities. Our goal is to raise more than $25,000 to establish this new endowment.
Join us in honoring Professor Akula Venkatram's retirement after 26 years of service to the Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering by helping to establish the Akula Venkatram Mechanical Engineering Scholarship to provide support for undergraduate students in the department of Mechanical Engineering. Our goal is to raise more than $25,000 to establish this new endowment.
Dimitrios Morikis, UC Riverside professor and founding faculty member of the Department of Bioengineering, passed away May 27, 2019. Well known for his work in immunophysics and immunoengineering, Professor Morikis used physics and engineering to understand molecular mechanisms of immunology, develop disease models, and design new drugs and molecular sensors for autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. Morikis is remembered as a caring teacher and devoted mentor. To keep his legacy alive, the new Dimitrios Morikis Bioengineering Scholarship will provide annual scholarship support to both undergraduate and graduate students studying bioengineering.
