Guardian Scholars Program

Guardian Scholars Program

The Bruin Guardian Scholars Program is dedicated to providing current and former foster youth with resources to help support students throughout their academic endeavors. BGS has numerous partners and liaisons to help make your time at UCLA as stress-free as possible. We offer resources that span from campus resources, where we can get you in contact with liaisons that can help you with academic, financial, or even mental wellness; to community resources, where we get you in contact with individuals who can help you with transitional housing, and other basic needs. We also try and connect our BGS members with employment and scholarship opportunities.
