Support Opportunity: UCLA Scholarships

A college education can change how someone sees the world, expand their potential, and provide a new sense of purpose. It is one of the most reliable accelerators of upward socioeconomic mobility. 

Unfortunately, students with great promise are being left behind due to the rising costs of higher education. Your gift to scholarships helps provide financial security, confidence, and the foundation for incredible students to achieve their dreams at UCLA and beyond. 

Your support makes you part of the UCLA Affordability Initiative, a campus-wide effort to ensure exceptional students with the talent and desire to make a difference can attend and thrive at UCLA, regardless of their financial circumstances. 

As the leading elite institution for socioeconomic mobility, UCLA surpasses its peers in providing students a path to a better future. Scholarships make this possible.  

About 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 fully immerse themselves in the UCLA experience and explore their passions both inside and outside of the classroom, such as: 

Every dollar you contribute 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 focusing on how to afford it.  

The UCLA Affordability Initiative is a campus-wide effort to make an undergraduate degree more affordable by raising money for scholarships to eliminate the potential burden of student loans. The Initiative aligns with the commitment by the University of California to provide state residents with pathways toward debt-free higher education. UCLA is the first UC campus to step forward and announced the Initiative in April 2023. 

As part of the Affordability Initiative, your gift makes you part of the special community of donors who want to create a better future for our students, their families, and our communities. 

On behalf of our incredible students, thank you for your support!
