The Department of Economics is pleased to announce that applications for its 2016-2017 scholarships are now being accepted. The Department appreciates the generous contributions of our donors. Scholarship amounts range from $1,500 – $5,000 each.  The application must be completed and submitted by October 28, 2016. The donors have individual criteria for each award; however, the following information applies to all awards:

  1. You must be officially in a Department of Economics major or pre-major.
  2. You must be a full-time UCLA student for the entire 2016-2017 academic year.
  3. Recipients are required to write a thank you note to formally accept the award.
  4. Bios of the recipients will be shown on the Department of Economics Scholarship website to recognize the award recipients.
  5. Scholarship awards are only for the current academic year. Receiving a scholarship one year does not guarantee a scholarship award the following year.
