Blum Center Information and Resources Related to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The safety and well-being of students is our first priority. Based on UC guidance and recent advisories from the CDC, UC Davis has decided to suspend the Blum Center Poverty Alleviation Through Action (PATA) undergraduate grant program for Summer 2020. We are communicating directly with students on updates so that they can plan for other programs or opportunities. See current information, next steps, and resources.

The UC Davis Blum Center provides mentoring, logistics and funding support for student-led initiatives and projects. We support teams entering competitions that emphasize social entrepreneurship and innovative strategies for reducing poverty.
