UCEAP First Generation Scholarship

The UCEAP First Generation Scholarship was established in 2018. For Winter/Spring 2022, this scholarship will provide one $2,000 award for a first-generation college student participating on a UCEAP program! See Eligibility Criteria. This scholarship can be applied to UCEAP virtual programs, but the award amount may be reduced.

Applicants will also be considered for the UCLA Kimura Airfare Grant, which covers $900 of student’s airfare. The Kimura Airfare grant is the result of a generous donation from UCLA alumni Stephanie and Mark Kimura. Recipients of this grant will have a small service commitment. No additional application required.
