Invest in Global Ties

Support & Invest in Global TIES

Global TIES receives only a portion of its funding from UC San Diego and the Jacobs School of Engineering. We are largely dependent on philanthropic gifts from alumni, parents, friends, corporations, and foundations. 

Whether they are working locally or globally, Global TIES students develop the skills and understanding they need to lead in the increasingly complex global society of the 21st century. Moreover, they address technical needs that would otherwise go unmet in communities that are far too often overlooked or under-served.

We invite you to join the growing list of distinguished alumni, parents, and friends who help sustain the Global TIES program and ensure that this life-transforming educational experience continues to be available to UC San Diego students. Know that your gift is an investment in the future of our students and the communities we serve.
