UCLA Latino Alumni Freshman Financial Aid Scholarship

The UCLA Latino Alumni Scholarship for Incoming Students with Need was established in 2020 by the UCLA Latino Alumni Association to provide need-based awards for incoming freshmen students active in the Latino/a community.

The UCLA Latino Alumni Association (ULAA) seeks to provide a gathering place for UCLA alumni, family, and friends for the benefit and advancement of the Latino community. ULAA is pleased to share the following questions for its annual scholarship. Scholarship awards will be up to $10,000 and are self-renewing over four years. Scholars will be eligible for ULAA’s alumni mentoring program and access to exclusive learning opportunities.

The ULAA review committee will NOT have access to students’ PIQ responses. Applicants are encouraged to draw upon these or any other previously written material. For consideration of the ULAA Scholarship, BOTH supplemental questions must be completed.

If you would like to contact the ULAA to learn more about their group, please email LatinoBruins@gmail.com.
