2010-2011 Department of Economics Undergraduate Scholarships

On behalf of generous donors, the Department of Economics is now

accepting applications for 2010-2011 academic year scholarships. Most

scholarships are in the amount of $5,000 each and require you to be a

Department of Economics student.

If you would like to apply, you must submit your completed application

no later than Friday, June 25, at 4:00 p.m. No late applications will

be accepted. To complete an application, please go to

http://www.econ.ucla.edu. Click on the Undergraduate link and then the

Scholarship link.

We have received a relatively small number of applications in the past,

so we definitely encourage you to apply. Your GPA is not the only

criteria we look at. When you write your essay, please make sure that

you let us know what activities you have been involved in and how you

can differentiate yourself from the other applicants. Students whose

essay indicates only that they need the money do not have as high of a

possibility of being selected.

We want to direct your attention to a particular scholarship, the

Jeffrey W. Baus ’59 Scholarship. This scholarship is open only to

students with a 3.0 to 3.5 cumulative UCLA GPA and a desire to pursue a

career in accounting. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask

one of the counselors in 2263 Bunche.

UCLA CAMPUS ACADEMIC REGULATIONS: Incompletes

Incomplete Policy

The instructor may assign the “incomplete” grade when work is of passing

quality but is incomplete for good cause. Assigning an “incomplete” is

at the discretion of the instructor, who is not obligated to do so.

If an instructor issues a grade of “incomplete,” the remaining

coursework must be finished by the end of your next completed quarter

(Fall, Winter, Spring). If the course is not completed, the “Incomplete”

will automatically lapse to an “F”.

It is your responsibility to discuss with the instructor the conditions

and timeframe for completing the course by the next regular term. Do

not re-enroll in the course!

If you cannot remove the “incomplete” within the allowed time frame, you

must petition the College to request an extension of time.
