UCLA Samueli Undergraduate Scholarships
The Engineering Application is only available until November 2nd and will only be tied to our engineering scholarships.
The General Application will stay active and match you to awards available at UCLA all year round.
Because of this your personal statement and your engineering statement need to be able to stand on their own merit.
For Engineering, we definitely want you to use our specific prompt that has engineering specific highlights.
For the General Application, it is fine to use the same engineering essay. That is still a personal statement, but it can also be different. You have a chance to highlight other interests and passions.
Same for your extra curricular activities. The ones listed in the General App and the Engineering App each to be able to stand on their own merit.
For Engineering, we definitely want your top 3 Engineering clubs or community service. You are limited to a maximum of 3 here, but less is fine.
For the General Application, If your top 3 engineering clubs are your top 3 overall clubs, then it is fine to duplicate in the General Application. But it is also a place to highlight other interests and involvement.
