There are two types of scholarships at UCI: UCI Distinguished Scholarships and UCI Campuswide Scholarships.
The UCI Distinguished Scholarships are the Regents’ Scholarship and Chancellor’s Excellence Scholarship. No application is needed for these scholarships, as the UCI Admissions Office automatically considers all new students based on their UC common application.
The UCI Campuswide Scholarships are separated into four categories: Community Leadership Scholarships, Innovation Scholarships, Academic Scholarships, and Anteater Scholarships. These will be awarded to students based on their UCI scholarship applications.
