RAISED Scholarship Opportunity

The UCLA Campus Retention Committee’s R.A.I.S.E.D Scholarship is now open! The R.A.I.S.E.D Scholarship was founded by two undergraduate students looking to support dismissed students. The R.A.I.S.E.D scholarship is open to support readmitted students who have successfully completed at least one full quarter after readmission. Selected recipients will receive $1,000 towards tuition. 

More information can be found in the attached flyer. 

History of the Scholarship:

The Retention and Advocacy Integration for Students Embracing Dismissal (R.A.I.S.E.D) scholarship was created by two students in UCLA’s Student Retention Center, who advocated for the need of dismissed students by aiding them in the readmission process. As the university has struggled to meet the needs of students due to dwindling funds by the state, dismissed students have suffered. There has been a lack of attention to the academic, holistic, and financial struggles that dismissed students face at UCLA as well as minimal available resources to dismissed students seeking readmission.

Each year, the Campus Retention Committee continues to offer this scholarship to support the efforts of readmitted students. Recipients of this scholarship will be expected to help advocate for the dismissed community by committing themselves to community service that will be beneficial for current dismissed students. The type of community service will be chosen by the recipient, and must be approved by the R.A.I.S.E.D. committee.
