Our Opportunities

Welcome to the UCLA Financial Aid and Scholarships Registered Student Application!

Please click the “SIGN IN” button to begin or update your application!

This website provides registered UCLA students the opportunity to apply for UCLA merit and need-based awards. These include, but are not limited to, scholarships, fellowships, stipends, grants, and prizes.

  • Prospective students, including admitted students who have not yet submitted their intent to register (SIR), should NOT begin an application until after submitting their SIR. Please use the Prospective Student Application.
  • All students in good academic standing should submit an application, as most scholarships have no GPA requirement. Students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress in order to continue to receive renewable awards.
  • For those awards that take financial need into consideration, please maximize your opportunities by submitting your FAFSA or Dream Act application each year by March 2nd (the priority deadline).
  • Awards open at different times throughout the year, so check back frequently to look for new application opportunities, update your profile, etc.

In spring, most current award applications are for the upcoming summer or academic year, but you may also receive award offers for current academic year (Commencement awards, etc.). Your FAN will identify when the award will be applied to BAR.
