UCLA Scholarships: A Community Campaign

You can help make UCLA more equitable and accessible for all! Your gift to scholarships will help provide students with the community and confidence needed to pursue their passions and expand their horizons. Your scholarship support is not only an investment in our current students, but an investment in our society's next generation of artists, doctors, civic leaders and other professionals who will go on to solve our world's greatest issues.

We are proud to be able to call ourselves the #1 public university in the nation and the leading institution in providing pathways for a better future for students from low- and middle- income families. In fact, UCLA enrolls more low-income students than all the Ivy League universities combined. With your help, we can continue to promote equitable access to our world-class university and ensure our students are supported throughout their time on campus and beyond. 56% of our undergraduate students rely on financial aid to attend UCLA and many are forced to take on multiple jobs or cut essential costs like books to afford their education. With your scholarship support, our students can engage fully in their studies and truly take advantage of all UCLA has to offer.  

Bruins are leaders in the global community and embody UCLA’s mission of education, research and service in all we do. As a public, land-grant institution, our student population reflects our city’s and our country’s diverse demographics and is positioned well to effect real societal change. Together, we can continue to empower our students to stay committed to their studies and their goals for a better future. Our students already share a unique passion for giving back and making the world a better place with 75% of our undergraduate students participating in community service and so many more pursuing careers that will benefit our greater society. Bruins, all across campus, are innovators, leaders and change-makers. 

Your scholarship support will help provide our students with the academic freedom to pursue unpaid internships, embark on research projects and participate in extracurricular activities to expose themselves to new cultures, ways of thinking and environments. Beyond financial assistance, your scholarship support gives students confidence, community and a sense of belonging at our incredible institution. You’re contributing to the future of UCLA and the future of our society by helping Bruins emerge as well-rounded individuals who are ready to change the world. 

We have much to be proud of, but are always striving to do more for our students! Students everywhere are facing the consequences of the rising cost of higher education, but your scholarship support will help ensure our Bruins can attend and thrive at UCLA. Today, you can help make a real difference in the fight for education access and help make our UCLA community the best it can be! 


On behalf of our students, thank you for your support! You are helping our students not only come to UCLA, but helping them make the most of their time on campus as they go on to make an impact on our communities through innovation, diplomacy and ingenuity. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of our students, our city and our world.

A special thank you to Roger Lee for our incredible video and a thank you to all the scholarship recipients who shared their stories.
