Giving Tuesday -- Give to CNAS!

Dear CNAS Colleagues,

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, many of us reflected on this year and all we are thankful for. I would like to express my gratitude to each and every one of you. Every member of the CNAS community has been instrumental in helping our students, the college, the university, and each other navigate through these extraordinary times. You continue to exhibit great resilience, courage, and empathy as we work to provide students with an accessible world-class education during unprecedented circumstances. I am incredibly thankful for your individual and collective efforts. 

Nonprofit organizations across the globe are preparing for #GivingTuesday on December 1 and UC Riverside’s colleges and schools will be participating as well. CNAS’ featured funds focus on the importance of supporting our students and campus community and I invite you to learn more and support the college’s #GivingTuesday efforts by clicking on the links below. 


  • CNAS Student Scholarships and Fellowships Fund allows supporters to make a direct impact on the lives of CNAS graduate and undergraduate students who will become the next generation of scientists. These funds play a critical role in helping students who demonstrate financial need during this time. 


  • Advancing Inclusivity in Entomology Endowed Scholarship will support entomology undergraduate students who experience social, cultural, and financial barriers and allow them to participate and excel in entomology research at UCR without worrying about financial commitments.


  • Donations made to the UCR Botanic Gardens Conservatory will be used for a new interactive exhibit space designed to engage and educate visitors about the diversity of the plant kingdom while allowing them to enjoy nature safely. 


Thank you again for your commitment and your support to the CNAS community.


Dr. Kathryn Uhrich
Dean, College of Natural & Agricultural Sciences
