The University of California at Los Angeles (or UCLA) is one of the top research institutions in the world. UCLA is organized according to six undergraduate colleges and has over 30,000 undergraduate students.
UCLA offers a number of scholarships and financial aid opportunities for incoming students.
How do students apply for UCLA Scholarships?
Students who hope to apply for scholarships at UCLA must:
- Complete the scholarship section on the admissions application
- Complete and submit the FAFSA (or the Dream Act application) by March 2nd
- Have a minimum GPA of 4.1 (or a 3.5 GPA if they are applying as a transfer student from a Community College)
Though many of these awards require applicants to demonstrated financial need, they also consider an individual’s credentials (as far as grades, test scores, and extracurricular activities). However, some scholarships like the Regents Scholarship award merit scholarships regardless of financial need.
