Make a Difference for Latinx Students at UCLA

Why Give?

 ¿Por qué dar? 

Did you know that 21% of entering freshmen and 23% of transfers in the fall of 2020 are Latinx students? The cost of attendance at UCLA is $28,408 which is 50.7% of a Latinx family’s annual income!  The high cost of a college education continues to rise and is a barrier for our UCLA Latinx students.  

Since 1991, ULAA has awarded more than $1.5 million in scholarship awards to 800 Latinx Bruins. On average, ULAA receives 500 applications each year from qualified applicants. Every dollar makes a difference!  

This year our UCLA Latino Alumni Spark Campaign will be awarding even more scholarships to deserving Latinx Bruins and we need your help!

“Winning the scholarship actually made me choose UCLA because it gave me a sense of belonging before I even started school. As a first-generation college student, the scholarship and the support system that came along with it, reassured me that I was in the right place.” - Esmeralda Suarez, ‘19 

With your donation, ULAA will be able to award 20 scholarships this year - let’s support nuestra comunidad of Latinx students at UCLA today. 

   How can I help? 

¿Cómo puedo ayudar?

Give the gift of education to our Latinx Bruin (Ositos) through a gift to our Spark campaign, which benefits the UCLA Latino Alumni Association (ULAA) Scholarship Fund.  

   Thank you! 

Gracias!

The impact of a college education lasts a lifetime, from personal growth to economic mobility. These benefits also impact the lives of future generations to come and uplift our Latinx communities collectively.

“My ULAA scholarship has taken an enormous weight off my shoulders, as well as my family’s in paying for my higher education. This is about more than money, this about hope that you have given me for my future and future generations.” -Andrea Arias, ‘20

Why do we use Latinx?

¿Por qué?

We use Latinx as a gender-neutral term to be inclusive of everyone who makes up our beautiful & diverse community.
