RSVP for the Caltech C Graduate Fellowship Celebration

In the words of Caltech’s President, Thomas F. Rosenbaum, “There is a tight connection between our ability to recruit faculty and the quality of our graduate students. There’s a virtuous circle— attracting the best graduate students attracts the best faculty, and on and on.”

In 2016, Caltech C alumni came together to establish an endowed graduate fellowship with a primary preference for under-funded disciplines, and a secondary preference for a first-year student of Chinese heritage.

As of February 25, 2021, more than 84 households have donated or pledged more than $785,000, exceeding our stretch goal of $750,000. Combined with the Moore Match, the total endowment is approximately $1,125,000. Since its inception, nine Caltech graduate students have benefitted from this fellowship.

Please read more about the origins of this fellowship on the Caltech Break Through website.

If you would like to make a donation, visit

• Select “Choose specific designations”, close the pop-up box, and where it asks for “Other designation”, type in “Caltech C Graduate Fellowship”

While we originally intended to celebrate with a toast on Caltech’s campus, our in-person festivities are on hold for now. In the meantime, we hope you will join us for a casual online event where we will hear from Dr. David Chan, Caltech’s newly appointed Dean of Graduate Studies, Caltech C fellows, and your Caltech C alumni friends. The celebration will be held on Saturday, March 20th, at 5:00 p.m. PDT.
