Every year from a pool of thousands of applications, the UCLA Alumni Scholarship
Program awards hundreds of scholarships to deserving students on behalf of all Alumni.
In order to read and score the applications we receive in a timely manner, we need
the help of all Alumni who are looking for ways to give back and support the next
generation of scholars — many hands make for light work. By reading applications
you'll identify outstanding students and help turn their UCLA dream into a reality.
Here are six more reasons why reading applications
is a worthwhile volunteer experience.
Meet the Next Generation of Bruins
Volunteers who read and score scholarship applications will receive tremendous insight
into the evolution of UCLA’s incoming students. Discover for yourself the
entrepreneurial, pioneering fire and promise of the Class of 2023.
Honor Your Journey
You’ve been there, done that and understand the excitement of the first day
as a UCLA student, as well as the grit it takes to earn a degree. Use your experience
to cull from a rich pool of deserving first-years the newest crop of Alumni Scholars.
Strengthen UCLA’s Future
The competition between world-class universities for bright students is fierce.
For UCLA to educate and inspire the change makers of tomorrow they must first become
Bruins. Let’s give students who see UCLA as their school of choice the incentive
and means to follow their hearts.
Allocated with Integrity
Alumni scholarships are not awarded based on whom a student knows or being in the
right place at the right time. Alumni scholars are chosen solely on their merit
as represented during the application process. Additionally, need-based grants may
be available for selected recipients.
A Caring Community
An alumni scholarship is more than a financial transaction. Students also receive
professional development through mentorship, service projects, mixers, social activities,
career and leadership workshops and networking opportunities for their entire undergraduate
Read From Anywhere
Closeness to UCLA is measured in spirit, not miles. Alumni who are willing to identify
truly outstanding students by giving a few hours of their time can read applications
from the comfort of home. Training is online. Applications will be read March 22-24,
Alumni volunteers may also participate in telephone interviews of semi-finalist
March 30-31. Volunteers who have read applications and conducted telephone interviews
may attend National Finals and help judge the last round of competition on-campus
April 12. Information on these opportunities will be shared soon.
