Prosperity and Possibility

Working for the global good starts with a wider worldview. The School of Global Policy and Strategy provides students with rare opportunities to explore conflict and cooperation from faculty who participate directly in international policy discussions.

With your philanthropic support of the School—which contributes to the Campaign for UC San Diego—we can prepare a new generation of leaders who are solving complex problems in a diverse and interconnected world that impact health, energy, the environment and government regulation.

With your help, UC San Diego can bond policy with possibility—unlocking bold solutions to society’s greatest challenges. Explore our giving priorities below and make a gift today to support the Global Policy and Strategy Excellence Fund.

Graduate fellowships provide supplemental aid so students can focus their time and attention to the high-powered academics that distinguish UC San Diego.
