The Regents' Scholarship is one of the most prestigious scholarships UC Irvine offers to freshmen entering from high school and transfer students entering from a California community college. This scholarship is renewable for 3 years for freshmen and 1 year for transfer as long as eligibility requirements are met. To be eligible for the Regents' Scholarship, you must be a U.S. citizen, an eligible non-citizen, or students qualifying under AB130 or AB131. This award is based on a comprehensive review of the admissions application, including, but not limited to test scores and grades.
UC Irvine offers many scholarship opportunities for current undergraduate students through the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships' annual online scholarship application. The scholarship application open period for continuing students is open through the month of January for awarding in the upcoming academic year. The Distinguished Scholarship category does not require any scholarship application. Students are automatically considered for the scholarships in this category based on the UC application for admission.
