Alumni Scholarships Volunteers
Since 1936, volunteers have played a vital role in the UCLA Alumni Scholarships Program. Volunteers are able to interact with like-minded Bruins and exceptional scholarship applicants while giving back to the university in a tangible way.
We invite UCLA Alumni and friends to help in the selection process of our exceptional candidates by reviewing applications, interviewing candidates and outreach. Our volunteers are absolutely crucial to the Alumni Scholarships Program.
