Resources for Students
AB540/Undocumented Student Center
The AB540 Center at Davis is interested in recruiting faculty to provide direct support and mentorship to students served by the Center. Although there are federal regulations that restrict the use of government funds for the purpose of undocumented student support, these policies are complex and do not apply to all funding pools. For more information on whether or not the grant you are applying for can be used to fund AB540 and/or undocumented students, please contact your program officer.
The UC system’s First-Gen Student Initiative is a relatively new program that has yet to be matched anywhere else in the country.Roughly half (46%) of UCD undergraduates identify as the first in their family to attend college (25% of UCD graduate students also identify as first-generation students). Of the 10 UC campuses, Davis has the highest percentage of first-gen students and has led the charge to develop resources designed at supporting this population.
Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI):
Graduate Studies is home to a number of programs designed to prepare educationally or economically disadvantaged undergraduate students for success in graduate education.
