“We are here to provide you with a world-class education and a wide-range of opportunities so you can achieve your goals and dreams.” – Chancellor Khosla
This fall, we are welcoming a new class of more than 100 Chancellor’s Associates Scholars to UC San Diego, bringing our total number of scholars on campus to 215. The scholarship was created in 2013 to improve the pathway for local qualified students to achieve a higher education at UC San Diego. At last night’s welcome reception, Chancellor Khosla initiated a new tradition for all three classes of the scholars – a “pinning” ceremony. The pinning signified the unity of the students as scholars and their formal induction into the Chancellor’s Associates Scholars community. Many faculty and staff members also attended the event to show their support of students through their academic journey at UC San Diego.
