Refer Your Top Performing Undergraduate Student!

The Scholarship Opportunities Program encourages and helps UCI's top performing undergraduate students to apply for 16 prestigious, merit-based scholarships that enjoy national and international recognition. We provide bright and dedicated undergraduates with the communication skills – writing, editing, public speaking and interviewing – needed to compete successfully for top awards. Students who utilize SOP services increase their involvement in meaningful research, service, and leadership opportunities on campus and beyond and cultivate solid relationships with faculty.

Top students who apply to SOP – and the faculty who offer insightful guidance as students shape their applications – demonstrate the value of hard work and the high quality of instruction and mentorship at UCI. In fact, many of our best and brightest candidates have been recommended to apply for these scholarships by enthusiastic faculty and staff.

Please continue to send talented students to us for scholarship advising via the referral form below. Clicking the graphic will send you to the referral form, and it should take only 2-3 minutes to complete. After submission, we will contact the student within 48 hours for further instructions and a notification that a faculty member has recommended them to SOP.

We look forward to meeting your students!

Request a Workshop and/or Materials

UCI Faculty, Lecturers, Teaching Assistants, and Staff may use this form to request prestigious scholarship outreach materials or a workshop presentation by Scholarship Opportunities Program advising team members.

An advance notice of at least one month is requested. Please note that SOP staff have the most availability for presentations during Fall and Winter quarters. We may not be able to fulfill presentation requests during Spring and Summer, our busiest period for advising and endorsement.
