Student Support
Developing the next generation of creative leaders

At the Claire Trevor School of the Arts, we don’t just teach creativity, we are the creative engine that powers innovation at UCI. For more than five decades, Claire Trevor students in Art, Dance, Drama, and Music have set the highest standards for practicing traditional art forms while pioneering new ones. Our alumni are recognized globally for their contributions to art and culture.

As the leading campus in the nation providing access to all qualified students, no matter what their background, our students rely on the generous support of donors to make their educational and artistic aspirations come alive. 

Scholarships and student support are critical to offset the unique costs of an arts education at UCI. Amid changing demographics, it’s essential that tomorrow’s artists reflect the audiences they will serve.
