In addition to advocating and monitoring UCSC’s benefits for retirees, and helping “Silver Slugs” stay in touch with one another through regular events, the UCSC Retirees Association has also provided scholarships to UCSC students who are US military veterans for many years. Last year, the Association created another scholarship program specifically for UCSC staff. Dubbed the "Silver Slug Award,” this scholarship is intended for current and retired staff and their dependents studying at UCSC who need financial assistance.  To apply for this scholarship, download the application below. The application deadline is February 1, 2019.
