The Regents Scholarship Program was established by the Regents of the University of California in 1962, and represents one of the highest honors awarded to a student at the University. Regents Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of demonstrated academic excellence, leadership and exceptional promise.
UCLA awards up to 100 Regents scholarships each year to entering and transfer students and currently has approximately 500 Regents Scholars enrolled at UCLA.
The UCLA Regents Scholarship program is unique to the UCLA campus, therefore, the award cannot be transferred to other UC campuses, nor could other UC campus Regents Scholarship awards be honored at UCLA. Selection of the Regents Scholars is completed by each campus individually.
Scholars must maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA during all quarters of attendance and are required to enroll in a minimum of 12 units per quarter. Students must notify the scholarship coordinator of any change in academic status, such as taking less than the required 12 units per quarter, dropping below a 3.0 or if they are planning to take an approved leave of absence. Taking a quarter off will not extend the award past your tenure and may jeopardize your future scholarship if you do not inform the Scholarship coordinator.
