Liberko Family Scholarship

The Liberko Family Scholarship with preference to UCLA students with a demonstrated interest in pursuing a trade career, particularly as a boilermaker, was established in 2018. Preference secondarily goes to continuing undergraduate and transfer students whose studies align with Engineering, Design or any degree relevant to pursuing a professional trade. Tertiary preference goes to students with demonstrated financial need. Applicants must complete a 500-600 word essay demonstrating interest in a professional trade career and be willing to meet and connect with the Liberko Family Scholarship committee.
