Founded in 1989, the UCLA Latino Alumni Association (ULAA) connects Latino alumni with each other and the UCLA campus to support the future generations of Bruins. ULAA’s mission is to organize Latino alumni, family and friends of UCLA for the benefit and advancement of the Latino community. In our 30th year we will continue to:
Provide an opportunity for alumni to take advantage of the social, intellectual, cultural and educational resources of UCLA
Promote access to UCLA’s academic, administrative and economic resources for the advancement of the Latino community
Encourage and assist Latino students to enter and succeed at UCLA
Promote the recruitment and success of faculty, staff and administrators
Provide financial, academic, social, and professional support to Latino students, faculty, and staff
In addition to our Scholarship Program, ULAA also looks to cultivate the skills and professional development of our students with programs like:
ULAA OrgullOSO Mentor Program
This program looks to foster meaningful relationships between ULAA scholarship recipients and Latino Alumni. Students are set-up with mentors in their prospective field and these mentors give priceless advice and guidance based on their experience in the field.
