Our Opportunities

Welcome to the UCLA Financial Aid and Scholarships Undergraduate Scholarships Application!


This website provides incoming and continuing students the opportunity to apply for UCLA merit and need-based scholarships, grants, and prizes.

  • Students maintaining a grade-point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher are given priority consideration, but all students in good academic standing should submit an application, as many scholarships have a lower- or no- GPA requirement.
  • For those scholarships that take financial need into consideration, please maximize your financial aid and scholarship opportunities by submitting your FAFSA or Dream Act application each year by March 2nd (the priority deadline).
  • Scholarships open at different times throughout the year, so check back frequently to look for new opportunities, update your profile, upload your most recent transcript, etc.
  • A special note for 2021-21: Please include childcare and/or parental care duties that increased significantly due to COVID-19 in the employment section. While we hope you will always include this information in your application, this year in particular, we want to recognize the extra time and effort that was devoted to these largely unpaid responsibilities during the pandemic’s stay at home orders.

Please click the sign in button to begin or update your application!
