In many research fields, interdisciplinary collaboration is becoming increasingly important. Complex questions often require multiple perspectives and skill sets. Outside of academia, many jobs require the same skills as successful interdisciplinary ventures: the ability to analyze problems from different perspectives, to work in a team, to communicate clearly with people from a wide range of backgrounds, and to manage multiple priorities. The earlier students start to hone these abilities in their careers, the more easily many will find it to develop these skills.
Asian Pacific Alumni (APA) of UCLA administers two scholarships for UCLA graduate students: APA-UCLA Excellence in Community Service (2 awards at $3,000 each) and APA-UCLA Sho Iino Accounting (1 award at $2,500 for either a UCLA undergraduate or UCLA MBA student).
DEADLINE: April 7, 2017
Excellence in Community Service Eligibility Criteria: Demonstrates a commitment to addressing a critical issue and/or has shown leadership in the advancement of the Asian Pacific Islander Community. Financial need is also required.
