Give to Scholarships

Today, a shifting economy poses a significant challenge to UCLA-bound students, but alumni and friends of the University have the ability to turn the dream of a quality education into solid reality.

  • By investing in students, we transform the trajectory of the individual.
  • By providing the means for outstanding scholars to reach their potential, we skip a stone into the waters of promise creating unlimited ripples of hope.
  • By demonstrating support for students, UCLA remains competitive to recruit world-class faculty and students.

Now is the time to make a steadfast promise of financial support to deserving students who have earned the right to call themselves Bruins. By investing in their potential, we move confidently toward the future and maintain the value of the UCLA degree.

Supporting extraordinary students is the best way to safeguard UCLA. Your gift will:

  • Make it possible for aspiring Bruin leaders to have the skills needed to lead.
  • Give tomorrow’s innovators and visionaries the tools to achieve the extraordinary.
  • Help Bruins from all disciplines fulfill UCLA’s primary purpose to create, disseminate, preserve, and apply knowledge for the betterment of our global society.
