UCLA Global Cities Scholarship

The International Education Office is pleased to offer the UCLA Global Cities Scholarship to students participating in the Global Cities program in Milan, Barcelona or Amsterdam, who want to engage with their program, document their experience abroad and help promote the program upon return to UCLA. Priority will be given to financial aid recipients at UCLA, but all program participants are eligible. See Eligibility Criteria.

Note: IEO strives to provide scholarship funds broadly to assist the maximum number of applicants. As such, multiple awards per applicant are unlikely.
