We were also named to the Sierra Club’s top-10 list for environmental sustainability – for the third year in a row. And, in its annual publication “America’s Best Colleges,” U.S. News & World Report ranks UC Irvine 12th among the best public universities in the nation. Founded in 1965, the University of California, Irvine combines the strengths of a major research university with the bounty of an incomparable Southern California location. With a commitment to cutting-edge research, teaching, learning and creativity, UCI is a driving force for innovation and discovery that benefits our local, national and global communities in many ways.

At the same time, we work to empower students with the skills they need to become leaders on campus and off, now and throughout their lives. A typical quarter at UCI provides many opportunities for involvement, from welcoming Shabbat dinners and holiday parties, to the weekly “Pizza, Politics and Parsha” study sessions, to guest lectures by distinguished speakers, cultural happenings, Hebrew language lessons with our Israel Fellow, and community service projects. Our annual iFest, which is planned and implemented by students, is UCI’s week-long Israel awareness initiative where Jewish and non-Jewish students gather to learn about and celebrate what Israel proffers. In addition, through the support of the Orange County Jewish community and offcampus partners, students participate in unique experiential and leadership training programs, including the Taglit Birthright free, educational trip to Israel, the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington D.C., Hasbara Fellowship advocacy training in Israel, Alternative Spring Break in Guatemala, national leadership

JEWISH EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY CONNECTION

J e wi s h S t u d i e s : T h e M i n o r

J e wi s h Law A s s o cia t i o n ( J L A )

www.humanities.uci.edu/jewishstudies/index.php The minor in Jewish studies is an interdisciplinary program seeking to introduce students to the many facets of Jewish cultures through the study of the history, philosophy, art, literature, languages, and social and political institutions of Jews from ancient to modern times. Jewish Studies is a field that is marked by a high degree of interdisciplinarity, and is connected both temporally and geographically to a wide range of cultures. Almost by definition, the field studies a trans-regional/national culture and, consequently, connects fields of study that are usually examined separately. The minor complements already existing areas of interest in a number of majors and disciplines, as well as new initiatives and programs, (such as the new Religious Studies major, Global Cultures, and European Studies). The minor provides students with grounding in areas of fundamental importance to the Humanities and Social Sciences, supporting and enriching the students’ majors.

www.law.uci.edu/students/organizations/list.html#jla The Jewish Law Association (JLA) is dedicated to facilitating meaningful connections between Jewish law students; organizing events for the benefit of the membership and the law school community; fostering outreach with the Orange County Jewish legal community; exploring the unique legal and cultural aspects of Judaism; and providing opportunities for tikkun olam (social action).

Visiting Israel Professors and Artists UCI students have a unique opportunity to learn about Israel from a variety of first-hand perspectives through the Schusterman Visiting Israel Professor and Artist-in-Residence programs. Funded by grants from the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation and the Rose Project of Jewish Federation & Family Services, Orange County, the Visiting Professor program brings distinguished faculty from Israeli universities to UCI. The Artist-in-Residence program provides renowned Israeli artists from various disciplines for up to a two-month engagement with UCI students, faculty and the community.

ScholarshipS

The Hillel Jewish Student Leadership Scholarships and Rabbi Allen Krause Memorial Scholarship are competitive scholarship programs available to incoming UC Irvine freshmen with demonstrated leadership experience in their Jewish and secular communities. Each year, four graduating high school seniors are selected to receive scholarships of $5,000, which are renewable for one additional year following demonstration of leadership in UC Irvine’s Jewish community. Scholarship recipients are committed to Jewish life, leadership, Israel and community building with the ability to articulate these passions and motivate others.

Community Connection Connection to community is a vital aspect of Jewish life. Orange County’s dynamic Jewish community has the distinction of being one of the few, growing Jewish communities in the U.S. and provides myriad services and opportunities for engagement and identity building to UCI students. Just steps from UCI, the Samueli Jewish Campus houses Jewish Federation & Family Services, Orange County, the Community Scholar Program, and the Merage Jewish Community Center. Nearby Chabad, orthodox, conservative, reform and reconstructionist congregations in Irvine and Newport Beach and throughout the county welcome UCI students to worship with them on holidays and throughout the year. The community also offers students opportunities for leadership development, internships, work experience and community service.

How has your experience at UCI shaped who you are today? The instant I set foot in Aldrich Park during the first day of my freshman year, I was already learning about and getting involved in Jewish life. Ever since then, I have had opportunities to grow as a leader and work with a variety of different student leaders and professional staff through Hillel and the Jewish community in general. I have worked at the Jewish Federation of Orange County as an intern since my freshman year, strengthening my ties to the overall Jewish community as well as the UCI community. I have been given opportunities to collaborate with the UCI Administration on projects to strengthen Jewish life at UCI, as well as foster our interfaith relations with other religious organizations on campus. I had the opportunity to work with the 2012 Dalai Lama Scholar, who was a fellow friend and Muslim Student Union member. We worked together to organize, plan, and execute a series of three events under the Leap of Faith series as the Dalai Lama Scholarship Project in conjunction with the President’s White House Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge. The series aimed to raise awareness about hunger and poverty in Orange County and the world. In addition, the interfaith component to the series enabled various religious organizations to collaborate on the project. This work was exceptional in that leaders and students of various faiths worked together on an important humanitarian issue, and it touched my heart in so many ways. I was also able to participate in the Taglit Birthright Program in Israel, and upon my return, traveled to Washington D.C. to attend the AIPAC Policy Conference. All of these experiences have not only strengthened my professional skills, but my own knowledge of and pride in my Judaism.

How has Jewish life at UCI influenced you? Being president of Anteaters for Israel let me face many difficult challenges and I learned so much from my time in a leadership position. Learning to coordinate between students, staff and administration are real life skills that I can take out of college and into the real world with me. Having the experience of putting on the 5th annual iFest was life changing; the lessons I learned taught me to improve personally and professionally. Seeing the campus come together to unite under the flag of Israel and celebrate the good things that the Jewish state has to offer is an amazing feeling, especially when you know that you’ve had a personal touch in creating the event. UC Irvine is one of the only campuses in the world that offers opportunities like this and I would not trade my experience here for any other.

B e n jam en B ee zy, J. D. – M. B. A . L eadership/I nvolvement: • Founding President of Jewish Law Association • Founding Member and Lead Article Editor for UC Irvine Law Review • Member of Intellectual Property and Cyberlaw Society

What is your involvement in Jewish life at UCI as a graduate student? One of the reasons I chose to be in the School of Law’s inaugural class was to have the opportunity to build a Jewish organization that would develop a culture of social action, community belonging and intellectual engagement.  I helped found the Jewish Law Association (JLA) to do just that.  We started small by having school-wide “Shabbatluck” dinners, where people would each contribute an item to create a Shabbat meal.  Then, the Dean and his wife approached us about having a school-wide Seder for Passover, which has become a school tradition.  This past year we sponsored our first speaker, inviting Justice Richard D. Fybel of the California Court of Appeal to talk about the failure of the German judiciary during the Nazi era.  As the Jewish student body grows, we hope to continue the frequency of our events and to become a greater part of the Orange County Bar and Jewish community.     One of the unexpected rewards of representing the JLA has been getting to know Jewish undergraduate students here at UCI.  Many have questions about the rigor of law classes or what the keys are to a successful law school application.  I always enjoy advising them or at least telling them how great I think the School of Law is at UCI.  My involvement in the JLA has been an invaluable part of my experience living and studying in Orange County, having made wonderful professional connections and friendships. 15

Cou rt ney Kravi tz DEG R E E : B.A. in Political Science, Minor in Women’s Studies Y ear O F G RA D UAT ION: 2012 Involvement O N CAM P US: • Vice President Recruitment and President of AEPhi • Student Coordinator for UCDC • Jewish Life Coordinator of the Social Media Team CU R R E N T O CCU PATION: Southwest Campus Coordinator for The David Project

How did Jewish life influence you in your college and professional career? Since coming to UCI my freshman year, I have been involved in the Jewish community in a number of ways.  I started off by joining AEPhi (the Jewish sorority) and taking on leadership roles as Vice President, Recruitment and President.  As a leader on campus, I participated in a number of conferences including AEPhi’s national convention, AIPAC Policy Conference and Israel Amplified.  Through the connections I had made in the Jewish community I was able to obtain an internship at the Embassy of Israel in Washington D.C. while I participated in the UCDC program. One of the most rewarding things I did during my time at UCI was to participate in a trip to Israel called Building Bridges Between Jews and Latinas.  As a 4th year, I worked as a student coordinator in the UCDC office and was a member of Hillel’s social media team.  All of these opportunities gave me leadership skills, an ability to network, and improved my self-confidence.  This all led me to get a job with The David Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating voices for Israel.   Without being a part of Jewish life at UCI, I don’t think I would have gained the skills I have, been able to find this job, and more importantly, find something I could be truly passionate about.

What influenced you the most about your Jewish experience at UCI? I was most influenced by Hillel. I had trouble making friends during my freshman year. It was not until I got involved in Hillel during my sophomore year that I realized I had a place at UC Irvine. I spent all of my summers at a Jewish summer camp and Hillel was the closest thing to that — being surrounded by people who know you inside and out and with whom you already share a spiritual connection. 16

FINANCIAL AID AND SCHOLARSHIPS

Fi n an cia l A i d

Apply i n g for Sc h ol a r sh i ps

UC Irvine has two important roles in financing your education: to administer a variety of financial assistance programs, and to provide you with sufficient support to pursue your education. If you demonstrate the need for financial assistance, you may be eligible for scholarships, grants, loans and/or workstudy. Also, you can be awarded scholarships on the basis of academic excellence.

When you apply for admission to UC Irvine, you are also applying for scholarships. You can be eligible automatically for certain scholarships because decisions are based on information provided in your UC Application. However, other scholarship opportunities may require you to submit additional documentation.

Types of Financial Aid • Grants are awarded on the basis of financial need and do not have to be repaid. • Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic criteria, or any combination of academics, financial need, leadership positions, campus or community activities, and work experience. They are designed to reward, encourage, and assist you in pursuing academic excellence and leadership roles. • Loans are money that must be repaid over a period of time, usually after you leave school. • Work-study is money that you may earn by working a part-time job. The program allows you to gain work experience and pay for a part of your educational expenses as you earn your award. Most jobs are on campus and departments are eager to hire students with work-study awards.

Hillel and Rabbi Allen Krause Memorial Scholarships are awarded to promising UCI students with leadership achievement in their local Jewish and secular communities and a commitment to campus Jewish life. Read more about these scholarships on page 13.
