CLAA-LA Scholarship Application

Scholarship Application Instructions

The UC Berkeley Chicanx Latinx Alumni Association (CLAA) Los Angeles Scholarship supports undergraduate Chicanx Latinx students enrolled at UC Berkeley who demonstrate financial need for tuition, books, equipment, and living expenses. The number and amount of awards depend upon availability of funds as determined by the CLAA Los Angeles Scholarship Committee.

Scholarship awards are based upon four primary factors:

  1. Must have attended/graduated from a Los Angeles County High School or Community College
  2. Current undergraduate class standing at UC Berkeley or incoming Freshman/Transfer student
  3. Demonstrated financial need
  4. Written responses to questionnaire and one essay question

If you are chosen as a finalist, you will have a phone or in-person interview with a Scholarship Committee member.
