What Is the Pacific Fund?


The Pacific Fund Grants Program is a direct result of the generous annual support from alumni, parents, employees, students and friends. Every gift to the Pacific Fund goes toward student access and academic innovation.

Undergraduate scholarships, study abroad, faculty research, and service-learning are just some of the ways that supporting the Pacific Fund directly impacts the University.

Through the Pacific Fund, the University aims to:

  • Strengthen current and develop new academic programs of distinction through investment in existing programs, national stature for the first-professional schools and new academic hallmarks.
  • Advance faculty teaching, scholarship and research by expanding faculty development and increasing resources for scholarship and research.
  • Pursue University-wide marks of distinction, specifically in leadership development, experiential learning, international programs and student achievement.
