Richard and Gerrie Leeds Study Abroad Scholarship

The Richard and Gerrie Leeds Study Abroad Scholarship is made possible by the generosity of Richard and Gerrie Leeds. This scholarship is available to UCLA undergraduate students in the humanities. Priority will be given to students with high financial need and who have not studied abroad. See Eligibility Criteria.

Please make sure you are pursuing a Humanities Major or Humanities Minor before applying.

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