About Us

Chancellor’s Associates catalyze nontradition at UC San Diego. In partnership with Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla, we continually advance access to higher education, through our scholarship program (with fundraising that has generated over $5 million to date and now sustains over 650 students). We provide the philanthropic support that breaks boundaries and levels the playing field for aspiring learners — in short, we change lives. And we stand ready to make even more academic dreams take flight with your help.

Our Priorities


More than 650 Chancellor’s Associates Scholars are currently in our program, but additional awards await funding. Many of our community’s brightest standouts will be able to attend UC San Diego only if they have support from visionary philanthropists like you. Help us open academic doors and change even more lives.

Student Success

From day one, our awardees have access to support services geared toward their long-term success, through the Chancellor's Associates Scholars Program (CASP). We want every one of this year’s 240 incoming students to thrive, on campus and beyond — just ask this year’s 100 graduates.

Chancellor's Associates Colloquium

Join us at our next Chancellor's Associates colloquium, featuring Susan Shirk, on Thursday, September 20, 5:30 p.m., at Farmer & the Seahorse. Relations between the US and China are growing increasingly competitive, even adversarial. Why have tensions escalated, and how should America handle them? Dr. Susan Shirk, who served as deputy assistant secretary of state and chairs a current policy task force, will offer provocative insight about the latest strategies for shaping the future of US/China relations.
