UCLA Chancellor's Blue and Gold Scholarship
- Scholarship Description
The UCLA Chancellor's Blue and Gold Scholarship was established to recognize the academic achievements of first year students coming to UCLA from Los Angeles County High Schools that traditionally have sent few students to UCLA. Every year UCLA Admissions alongside Financial Aid and Scholarships select high achieving students to receive this prestigious award. This award is also open to students coming to UCLA from community colleges in the greater Los Angeles area. Currently, awards range from $1,000 up to $5,000 and are offered for four years to freshmen and two years to transfers.
Community service is an integral part of the Chancellor’s Blue and Gold Program. Each scholar is required to complete twenty hours of community service each year they are receiving a Chancellor's Blue and Gold Scholarship. Students have participated in a variety of University activities including recruitment and outreach, assisting in workshops, and returning to their alma mater to encourage other students to apply to the University of California.
