The goal of Raza Weekend is to invite all Latinx/Xicanx admits to UCLA. Raza Weekend gives newly admitted students the opportunity to spend a weekend to experience life as a Bruin. Although it is not the only opportunity to experience the college life at UCLA, it is a great chance to gain community awareness, learn how to utilize resources and opportunities that are offered, and build long-lasting relationships with fellow admits in the Latinx/Xicanx community.
Making a decision about how close to stay to home is a crucial decision that will determine a lot about your college experience. Our 2017 Raza Weekend Event offers the perfect opportunity to help with making that decision.
In an effort to make this program equally accessible to all applicants regardless of background, we are offering travel scholarships for applicants who may encounter financial difficulties. This scholarship is intended to maximize the opportunities for Raza students to experience what higher education has to offer. We want to allocate these scholarships to those who would benefit the most from the assistance.
