UCI student spearheads first student-funded scholarship for refugees and asylum seekers

An encounter with Syrian refugees during a family trip to Turkey in 2014 inspired senior Iman Siddiqi to create the first student-funded scholarship program for refugees and asylum seekers at a UC campus.  She has already raised a little over $93,000 for the program.
"The best way for us to invest in the post-conflict development of war-torn countries and prevent a lost generation is by providing higher-education opportunities for displaced people," said Siddiqi, a political science and Global Middle East Studies major.

The Parent Campaign for Student Success is the inaugural university campaign driving parent support to the UCI Fund, the fund that provides the university with the ability to support the areas of greatest need on campus. As our diverse student population continues to grow, so does the need for resources. Giving to the parent campaign will help UCI remain one of the best universities in the country and will help us better facilitate the overall health and wellness of our growing student body.
