Read and Rank Merit-Based Scholarship Applications for Newly Admitted UCLA Students
All it takes is a commitment of a few hours over one weekend to make a difference. By reading scholarship applications from newly admitted students, you’ll help identify and support the best of the best from an incredible body of potential Bruins.
The students who will become the Class of 2025 have faced the never-before-seen-in-our-lifetime challenge of learning and thriving during a pandemic. They navigated the isolation of remote classrooms, watched enrichment opportunities be canceled and missed out on many youthful rites of passage that can never be reclaimed. Some bore witness to the loss of life of loved ones or the security of their household income. They all, to some degree, paid the price for a debt not of their making and instead of losing hope or settling into mediocracy they set their sights on the stars. UCLA received a record-breaking 140,000 applications from first-year prospects and another 28,000 applications from transfer students who hope to become Bruins.
Soon approximately 14% of these students will be admitted to UCLA and then they will have to make the biggest decision of their lives to date, while worrying about finances and ranking multiple acceptances. Receiving an Alumni Scholarship will not only help ease their financial burden, it guarantees a supportive community of scholars will be waiting to welcome them. And, when students tally the pros and cons of each institution that admitted them, an Alumni Scholarship coupled with all of the possibilities UCLA has to offer can maintain our competitive edge in comparison to other prestigious colleges and universities. With a scholarship in hand, come Bruin Day, many of these deserving students' futures will be Bruin.
