The Scholarship Resource Center (SRC) will host a SCHOLARSHIP WRITING WORKSHOP specifically for HSSEAS students applying for HSSEAS Scholarships in Fall 2018 for the next application cycle. 

This workshop is especially useful if you have never attended or would like to get into the right mindset to update your application from the previous year.

Usually in weeks 1 or 2, you only need to come to one!

Please RSVP will open in Fall 2018

The information was presented by the Scholarship Resource Center.  If you couldn’t make it to the workshop, but want to take advantage of their tips and tricks, make an appointment now no matter what stage of the writing you are.  Haven’t started, they can help you brainstorm.  Have a draft?  They provide one on one consultations and will go over how to strengthen your draft with you.

Please note that week 5 & 6 are very busy at the SRC, so stopping by or making an appointment for week 3 & 4 is advised:  http://scholarshipcenter.ucla.edu/  With roughly 500 applications for only 100ish awards, a strong essay is extremely important.  They can assist with ANY scholarship application, not just HSSEAS.

The majority of scholarships listed at the above link are administered by the Office of Academic and Student
Affairs (OASA), which is located at 6426 Boelter Hall.  However, some department offices also administer their own scholarships. Scholarships maintained by OASA will be part of the HSSEAS Scholarship Program: We typically announce open online applications in early Fall with a hard deadline set for the first Monday in November. Recipients will be notified in early winter, and award monies dispersed over winter and spring quarters.  If selected, students will be required to complete a follow-up Donor Questionnaire, write a thank you note to the Donor, and participate in the Scholarship Brunch in April.  Details will be provided by External Affairs, post Selection.
