Over and above the wonderful academic and personal experiences students have during their time living in a foreign country, UCLA students can contribute to their local communities abroad by bringing with them their True Bruin Values. The UCLA International Education Office is proud to announce the Global Community Scholarship, providing funding to students who have a strong financial need and who demonstrate an interest in taking their True Bruin values to their local communities abroad.


  • $1,600 scholarships will be awarded to ten UCLA students.


  • Must be a currently enrolled UCLA undergraduate or graduate student participating on a UCEAP study abroad program for Winter or Spring 2019. UCLA Travel Study programs are not eligible for this scholarship.

Please note that these scholarships will be awarded through a competitive application process. Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate that their study abroad experience will have great academic and personal impact and who also demonstrate a high financial need.
