          UC Hastings Sees Dramatic Increase in Grant Awards

          Grant awards at UC Hastings College of the Law have exceeded $1 million this fiscal year, a 48 percent increase over the last year.

          Leading grant makers, including the MacArthur Foundation, the Rockefeller Family Fund, and the Leon A. & Esther F. Blum Foundation, recognize the impact of the College's high-quality academic program based on scholarship, teaching, and research, and engagement with the legal and advocacy community. 

          The largest of these awards are MacArthur Foundation grants totaling nearly $500,000 in support of the groundbreaking work conducted by the UC Hastings Center for Gender & Refugee Studies. Private foundation support enables the College to thoroughly prepare its graduates for a profession with continuously changing demands and needs.
