UCLA Scholars Program

UCLA’s Center for Community College Partnerships (CCCP) presents the CCCP Scholars Program. The goal of the program is to motivate, inform and prepare students to transfer from a California community college to selective Top Tier Research institutions such as UCLA. Students in the program have access to our summer and year-long academic preparatory transfer programs which guide students through the community college experience, the application and admissions process, research and pre-graduate opportunities, and career exploration. CCCP Scholars have a higher rate of admission to selective institutions and are eligible for special scholarships.
