J. Yang Scholarship

Funding for incoming students from Taiwan. Deadline varies.

The UCLA Asia Pacific Center announces the J. Yang Scholarship for exceptionally talented students from Taiwan to pursue study at UCLA. The J. Yang Scholarships will be awarded to students admitted to UCLA for the 2020–2021 academic year across the divisions of the College of Letters and Science and professional schools for the purpose of recruiting and retaining highly promising future scholars from Taiwan high schools and universities.

UCLA was founded in 1919 and is one of the top-ranked research universities in the world. The university has 121 graduate degree programs and its graduates have become leading scholars and professionals around the world. Our campus attracts students from across the globe, with international students making up more than 16% of the incoming graduate student body. The university’s location in Los Angeles places it in one of the world’s most dynamic and diverse cities.

Graduate Student Applicants

Fellowship packages will partially or fully cover study at UCLA for one to three years, including tuition/fees, non-resident tuition (NRST), and a living stipend, with exact amounts to be determined based on available funds.

Students must apply and be admitted to a graduate program at UCLA. Departments will nominate accepted students for the J. Yang Scholarship. Students do not apply for the fellowship directly to the Asia Pacific Center.

  • Incoming UCLA master’s or doctoral students from Taiwan who have completed their high school or undergraduate education in Taiwan and who are accepted to graduate programs across the divisions of the College of Letters and Science or professional schools at UCLA are eligible.
  • Applicants must apply for admission to a UCLA graduate program and will then be nominated by the relevant department at UCLA should they be accepted for admission for the 2020–2021 academic year.
  • The deadline for the Yang Fellowship application is the same as the deadline for your admissions application (varies by department or school).

Undergraduate Student Applicants

  • Scholarships will be awarded to incoming students annually. The amount may vary depending on available funding.
  • Incoming UCLA undergraduates from Taiwan who have completed their high school education in Taiwan and are accepted for admission to UCLA are eligible.
  • Students should apply through the UCLA Financial Aid and Scholarships Application at https://ucla.academicworks.com/, after applying for admission to UCLA. The scholarship application period is January 1–March 30, 2020.
The Asia Pacific Center will review and rank the nominees according to merit, based on UCLA department or school nominations (in the case of graduate students), applicants’ academic records and letters of recommendation, financial need, and distribution across disciplines. Award offers will be made in conjunction with students' admission and financial aid offers from UCLA.
