Beyond financial support, a UCLA scholarship creates real opportunity for a student to reach their full potential with unparalleled programming, faculty, and community at the #1 public university in the nation.
Gifts to scholarships help provide financial security, confidence, and the foundation for incredible students to achieve their dreams.
By supporting UCLA scholarships, you ensure that our best and brightest students can attend and thrive at UCLA, no matter what their financial circumstances may be.
More than half of our students receive financial aid and scholarships in order to attend UCLA, but the typical packages leave a significant gap in funding, resulting in students taking out loans and part time jobs that detract from their studies and ability to focus on their professional development. We can do more for our students through scholarship support.
Scholarships reduce the amount of money students need to borrow and work off during school.
Empower students to explore their passions both inside and outside of the classroom, such as:
Every dollar you contribute is one less dollar these students have to work for or is one less dollar of student debt.
Across the nation, the cost of higher education continues to grow. In fact, the biggest hurdle for students working to achieve their degrees is cost of living.
While UCLA's tuition is more affordable than private institutions, the total cost of attendance is still a challenge for many students. Scholarships allow students to focus on their college experience, rather than struggling to afford it.
