The University of California Irvine Director's Scholarship is one of the most prestigious scholarships UC Irvine offers to domestic, out-of-state students entering UCI. This scholarship is renewable for one additional year as long as eligibility requirements are met. To be eligible, you must be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or an international student with an F1 visa. Selection 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.
