BruinTech Scholarships 2018-2019

 

The BruinTech Executive Board is pleased to announce our annual scholarship program. As part of UCLA BruinTech’s mission, we strive to foster personal development and professional growth through our yearly scholarships. Our goal is to enrich the University’s community by offering Bruin Technologists an opportunity to further their knowledge through professional development programs and continuing education classes. This year we are excited to be awarding four (4) scholarships for a UCLA Extension Course, including one seat to the UCLA Extension Technical Management Program. 

 

2018–2019 BRUINTECH SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION PROCESS 

A total of four (4) scholarships will be awarded for the 2018–2019 BruinTech year, with one of them being the Jackie Reynolds Scholarship. 

Three (3) $1,000 scholarships will be awarded towards the cost of a UCLA Extension course. Each recipient will be reimbursed up to $1,000. 

  • The recipients will need to complete and pay for in advance the chosen UCLA Extension course within the 2018–2019 UCLA academic year (November–June). 
  • Awards will be paid out as reimbursements of documented tuition expense. Recipients are required to provide a copy of receipts and transcripts. 
  • If the recipient cannot attend or complete the course or cannot fund the cost of the course during the specified academic year (2018–2019) the award will be forfeited. The recipient is not automatically eligible for reimbursement in the next academic year (2018–2019) and would have to apply 

The Jackie Reynolds Scholarship is one (1) prepaid UCLA Extension Technical Management Program (TMP). This 5-day course will be held March 24-29, 2019. Applicants must show proof of approval from your supervisor as part of your BruinTech scholarship application. 

  • The TMP is a 5-day program to develop managers into dynamic leaders helping new managers discover new ways to solve problems, strategize, and motivate others. Learn the latest leadership techniques from experienced professionals and industry leaders. For experienced managers, upgrade to the latest thinking on management and leadership. This intensive week-long program helps managers gain leadership skills, enhance interpersonal skills, learn the latest business trends and paradigms, obtain a repertoire of management methods, and network with attendees from around the world. 

 

ELIGIBILITY 

Scholarships are available to all career staff employees (contract appointment are also eligible) who have completed their probation period. Graduate students are not eligible. There is a limit of one application per person, per academic year.
