#BruinStrong: Bruin Tech Award
The Bruin Tech Fund Grant has been established to meet the needs of students who may not have the resources to purchase the technology at home on their own to continue to excel in their courses in a virtual environment.
Students who typically rely on access through campus WIFI, loaner laptops from the library and direct access to professors are experiencing disruption to their studies. This innovative opportunity ensures that amidst the stress of an uncertain time, no undergraduate student is left behind because of financial need.
As part of the Bruin family, we can rise to this challenge. Please join us in sending our students a strong message that, in times of crisis, Bruins are there for each other. Distribution of donor funds are being administered by a special task force and UCLA's Financial Aid Office with mini-grants up to $1,000 per student request. Since Dean and Vice Provost Patricia Turner provided the application channel this week, over 1,000 grant requests have come in from students signifying an anticipated need of $500,000 to meet student needs.
