With roughly 500 applications for only 100ish awards, a strong essay is extremely important.

The UCLA Scholarship Resource Center sponsored a SCHOLARSHIP WRITING WORKSHOP specifically for Engineering students applying for these scholarships in Fall 2019 on October 4th and 8th.

This workshop is great for first time applicants, for guidance on how to get started and brainstorm, for tips and tricks for writing your strongest essays, or revamping an older essay.  It will provide some structure so you can get started in making a draft that you can bring into the SRC or the Undergraduate Writing Center.  

UCLA Scholarship Resource Center Appointments

The SRC can provide one on one consultations and will go over how to strengthen your draft with you. Because of how impacted appointments can be, you may only get one appointment, so while they can help you brainstorm, the best use of your time is probably to have a draft to bring in.  Please note that week 4 & 5 are very busy at the SRC, so making an appointment ASAP is advised.

  • For questions that may take 10 – 15 minutes to answer, they are happy to speak with students on the phone or on a walk-in basis. http://scholarshipcenter.ucla.edu/
  • For individualized counseling and writing support, we ask that students make appointments using our online appointment booker at least 24 hours in advance:  https://calendly.com/src-appointments  (Check in each individual staff’s calendar to find a few appointments that may not be available via the “any appointment” calendar.)

They offer four 30-minute individualized appointments per day, Monday – Friday, between the hours of 12:30pm – 5:30pm.

Given the limited availability of these appointments we ask that you:

  1. Attend one of our scheduled workshops to receive an introduction to the basic strategies of earning scholarships for college.
  2. Make sure you are prepared with specific questions and written materials when you come for your appointment.
  3. If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so at least 24 hours in advance.
  4. Do not schedule more than one appointment at a time. Students who book multiple appointments in advance will have all of their appointments automatically cancelled. 

UCLA Undergraduate Writing Center Appointments

Appointments can be made at the writing center 7 days or more in advance

They also have drop in hours at all locations all Quarter:  https://wp.ucla.edu/wc/hours-location/
