The Veteran Appreciation Dinner is UCI’s end-of-the-year celebration honoring our deserving graduating veteran and military students as they prepare to embark on the next stages of their academic and professional careers.
Friends, family, campus allies, and military supporters are all invited to join us for dinner and express appreciation to our brave students for their service to our country. The dinner also gives us the opportunity to recognize the Veteran Student of the Year, Military Bridging the Gap scholarship recipients, Thomas T. Tierney Veteran Scholarship Awardees and this year's newest scholarship the Elliott Kornhauser Family Foundation Military Student Bridging the Gap Scholarship Awardee.

Support Our Troops!
Help support student veterans by sponsoring a table at the Veteran Appreciation Dinner when you RSVP, or by giving to one of our Military Student Funds.
Our "Bridging the Gap" Scholarship Fund helps veteran students who may struggle with the gap between the limit of G.I. benefits and the actual cost of education, especially during those last few quarters. And our Programs Fund helps the Veteran Services Center host vital programs and services which expedite veteran student success and facilitate their transitions to an academic environment following military service.
Contributions of $1500, $2500, $3500, or more can really help veteran students pursue and achieve their academic and professional dreams. Please see our RSVP and/or GIVING pages for more information. Gifts and sponsorships made by campus departments with university funds are not tax-deductible.
