Bruin Scholars Initiative

Investing in Tomorrow’s Leaders Today
UCLA is an engine of opportunity. It attracts the best and brightest from every segment of society and they become the leaders and innovators who shape our world for the better.

Reaffirming the need to invest in tomorrow's world citizens, this past year Chancellor Gene Block announced the UCLA Bruin Scholars Initiative. The Initiative aims to generate $500 million in student support, including $300 million for graduate student fellowships and $200 million for undergraduate scholarships, by June 30, 2013.

The UCLA Bruins Scholars Initiative is helping to meet the university’s commitment to excellence and advance its core values of access, affordability and diversity. By doing so, it is also maintaining UCLA’s competitive advantage and strengthening the public university for future generations.
