The UCLA Financial Aid and Scholarships Registered Student Application is open year round.

Each year, a new application cycle will begin in mid-to-late March. Priority consideration for upcoming academic year awards is given to students who submit their general application by June 30.

To apply for scholarships:

  • Registered UCLA students may login via the blue “SIGN IN” button, using your MyUCLA login credentials. (Prospective students, including admitted students who have not yet submitted their intent to register (SIR), should NOT begin an application until after submitting their SIR. Please use the Prospective Student Application.)
  • Complete the general application questions and submit. [Additional information available in the UCLA student information system will also be automatically included in the scholarship profile to increase your opportunities. Click on the “APPLICANT RECORD” button in the lower left, to review this information.]
  • If presented with additional questions that are needed to match your profile with various scholarships: Submit your general application, and then proceed to answer these supplemental questions, if you wish to be considered for these scholarships.
  • Submit your application by the posted scholarship application deadline!! All deadlines are 11:59 PM Pacific time of the date noted.

Note: Although we cannot transfer responses from the UCLA Prospective Student Application, we now have the ability to retain almost all of your responses on the Registered Student Application for upcoming cycles. Please review any prior responses, to confirm all your information is still up-to-date, as outdated information will impact your award eligibility.

Please check the UCLA scholarship portal frequently. Scholarship opportunities are updated and added regularly, and may require you to supply additional information to be considered for them.
