Shirley and Walter Wang Study Abroad Scholarship

The Shirley and Walter Wang Study Abroad Scholarship is made possible by a generous gift from Shirley and Walter Wang who wish to encourage UCLA students to study abroad. The Wang Scholarship is designed for middle-income UCLA students (family income between $65K and $150K), with a preference for First-Generation and STEM students. See Eligibility Criteria. Students must comply with program registration/application deadlines to be eligible for this scholarship (Students participating in virtual programs are not eligible for this scholarship).

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