Our Mission

The UC Irvine, Center for Investment and Wealth Management's Financial Literacy Summer Residential Program is a one-week, on-campus program dedicated to helping underserved 9th and 10th grade students by teaching life skills in money and investment management in a highly supportive environment.  Our mission is to instill a continued desire to strengthen understanding of financial matters, encourage admission into a four-year college or university, and to inspire confidence and success in all areas of life.

Our summer residential scholars are smart, ambitious, determined and eager to learn.  They need only a few key tools to achieve their educational and life goals - financial literacy and guidance on how to develop a plan for their future.  The LIFEvest program gives these deserving students a solid foundation on which to build their dreams.

It costs $2,100 to send a student to the Financial Literacy Summer Residential Program; however, the program tuition comes at no cost to the student and is completely funded by the Center and its sponsors.
