Student Startup Fund
The Student Startup Fund provides micro-grants to UCI degree-seeking students and alumni within 12 months of graduation who have engaged in the campus’ entrepreneurship programs, competitions and centers. These grants help cover specific project-related expenses up to $1,000 (i.e. prototyping materials and project supplies) to further develop students’ entrepreneurial concepts/startups. Granted funds are intended for immediate or short-term use.
