The UCLA International Institute is pleased to announce the Mudie-Glaser Scholarship which will provide funding for UCLA students who study abroad on any of UCEAP’s programs at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel. For the 2023-24 academic year, the award amount will average $3,000, but may be higher depending on program length, academic performance and individual need

The Mudie-Glaser Scholarship is designed for UCLA students from any academic background who wish to gain first-hand knowledge of Israel and its citizens and to share their experience with others upon return to UCLA. This scholarship is made possible by a generous gift from Patricia Glaser and Samuel Mudie, who wish to encourage students of diverse backgrounds to study abroad in Israel.
