Through the generosity of Chris Swarth and the late Marilyn Fogel, the UC Merced Natural Reserve System established a research internship that helps UC Merced undergraduate students gain field research experience - the Swarth-Fogel Undergraduate Research Scholarship. 


For Giving Tuesday and through the end of the year, every dollar you donate to help build up the Swarth-Fogel Undergraduate Research Scholarship endowment will be matched, up to $500!


Learn more about the work of Mark Twomney, the inaugural student supported by the fellowship.


And of course, you can also support individual reserves, which will help us continue to support of all the wonderful research, teaching, and public service that occurs daily on the UC Merced Natural Reserve System and affiliated sites.
