My scholarship is so much more than money. It unlocked a community where I’ve met my best friends, it helped me choose UCLA, and it’s allowed me to put my best foot forward in school.

At UCLA, our people are our strength. We know that our mission to educate, research and serve is best achieved when our values of equity, diversity and inclusion are upheld.

– Anna Spain Bradley, Vice Chancellor, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

We need our hospital workers and first responders to feel safe as they work to get all the rest of us through this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We are very pleased to be able to support such important work.
