Program Overview

The Simon Fellows program is an innovative subset of the award-winning William Sharpe Fellows program aimed at connecting talented UCLA students with hands-on internship experiences with top investment management, hedge funds, private equity and venture capital firms.

Selected Simon Fellows are paired with industry mentors, and are able to network with Sharpe Fellows and program alumni.

Applications are available in the Fall, and the application materials required to apply are as follows:

  • A one-page resume– include any internships/experience from this summer and relevant industry exposure or training
  • A one-page cover letter– written specifically for this program and highlighting what you bring as an applicant. Be sure to speak to your experience and how it relates to your chosen industry
  • A one-page essay– focused on “your outside interests and any life experiences that set you apart as one of UCLA’s best.”
