News: PCC Alumnae Receive Prestigious Scholarship from UCLA

Mina Amin and Julianna Mary Rose Ostro, Pasadena City College alumnae and current UCLA students, recently received the Transfer Alliance Program (TAP) Scholarship for the upcoming academic year. 

The Transfer Alliance Program, which is a collaboration between local community colleges and the UCLA College of Letters and Science, is designed to foster academic excellence at the community college level and to promote diversity and retention in the UCLA transfer population. Community college students work closely with faculty and receive on-going academic advising from counselors assigned to their school's Honors/Scholars Program. TAP faculty directors and counselors meet twice a year with UCLA colleagues to stay abreast of admissions issues and programmatic developments at UCLA.

Selection as a TAP Scholar entitles transfer students to an academic scholarship of at least $5,000 per year. Only 84 students were selected for the honor this year. The scholarship is renewable for a second year if students have achieved a UCLA GPA of at least 3.0 and completed 45 units.
