Join us April 23-27, 2024 to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the UCSC Right Livelihood Center. We will inaugurate UCSC’s new role as Global Secretariat of the Right Livelihood College network, launch an international student network, launch faculty-Laureate research clusters, and more.
We are excited to offer an internship scholarship program called Transforming Futures. The goal of the program is to open up opportunities and remove financial barriers for first-generation, underrepresented, and low-income students at UC Santa Cruz so they can participate in career-advancing non-credit summer internships off campus.
Applications are due April 15, 2024.
