-- The REAL Program (Undergraduate Research/Internships Fund): Undergraduate research and internships are among the most valuable experiences. That’s why we created the REAL Program. In 2018, our first year of the program, which stands for Real Experience. Actual Learning, the program distributed $550,000 to more than 125 students across 18 different majors.   
While this was an incredible start to the program, at the end of the day, we want to serve all of our studentsOur ultimate goal is to provide at least one paid experiential learning opportunity to every College of Arts and Sciences student during their time at Santa Clara. Please make a contribution today to help us reach our goal!


-- Dean’s Excellence Fund: A gift of any size to the Dean’s Excellence Fund will allow the Dean to move quickly in implementing the College’s strategic vision and take advantage of new opportunities as they arise. This critical, flexible funding will support teaching, scholarship, and community engagement activities for students and faculty.
