Invest In Research

Creating New Realities Through Innovation and Discovery

Thomas Edison once said, “[g]enius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.” Our researchers are no exception to this rule, single-mindedly pouring themselves into the pursuit of new discoveries. Whether a student, fellow, or faculty member, UC Santa Barbara’s academicians have pushed the boundaries of knowledge into advanced and limitless spaces.

The research breakthroughs we have witnessed have inspired supporters from around the globe to contribute to our pursuits. Our donors are not unlike the researchers they support; they are inquisitive, creative, and committed to pushing the boundaries of knowledge. They feel a strong call to action—some by supporting places of research such as labs, centers, and institutes, some by contributing to scholarships and fellowships, and still others by funding research initiatives that offer innovative and real-world solutions. Join the thousands of donors ignited by ideas and drive UC Santa Barbara into the next frontier of knowledge.
