Sponsored Awards and Scholarships

UCLA Extension also accepts funds from organizations that have sponsored an award and/or scholarship to help a student(s) cover tuition costs. Here is how it works: 

Funds should be made payable to UC Regents and mailed to:

Regents of UC
Department K
P.O. Box 24901
Los Angeles, CA  90024-0901

Please include:

  • Recipient's name, address, and telephone number
  • Award enrollment period (e.g., Winter Quarter 2018 through Summer Quarter 2018)

All checks/funds received from sponsors will be processed as gift payments and immediately deposited into the receiving student’s account for unrestricted use. Any unused balances will be refunded to the student. 

UCLA Extension is not responsible for ensuring the receiving student uses the funds in the manner intended by the sponsor. This responsibility rests solely with the student.

The receiving student holds responsibility for reporting satisfactory academic progress to their sponsor organization, if required. To do so, the student can order an official UCLA Extension transcript.
