Support & Scholarship


The UCLA Black Alumni Association offers scholarships to Freshman, Transfer, Continuing and Graduate students at UCLA. The scholarship program provides financial assistance to qualified UCLA students in an effort to promote academic success. Criteria for selection includes academic performance,financial need and a commitment to community and educational involvement. Scholarships range from $500 - $1000. 


As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, The UCLA Black Alumni Association is helping to preserve the legacy of African-American students at UCLA. Since 2007, over 500 donors have participated in an effort that has raised over $5 million dollars. Over 1,100 African-American/Black students have benefited from this effort receiving scholarships ranging from a one year scholarship of $1,000 to multi-year scholarships of up to $40,000. This effort has resulted in an increase in the admit numbers of African-American/Black students coming to UCLA since the devastating fall resulting from Proposition 209.

Nommo Newsmagazine

Nommo is the Afrikan Newsmagazine at UCLA. It draws its name from the Ki-Swahili term Nommo, which means the magical power of the word. Nommo staff volunteer their time and talent to serve the community through honest and accountable reporting. The cost of training to support the development of Black journalists, the cost of equipment, and the cost of printing all come out of a shoestring budget. Currently, the Nommo budget only supports one print issue per year.
