Re: Chancellor’s Diversity Leadership Scholarships

On behalf of Campus Human Resources, the Anderson School of Management, and the Chancellor’s Office, I am pleased to invite applications for the Chancellor’s Diversity Leadership Scholarships to one of three Diverse Leadership Development Programs offered in 2015 by UCLA Anderson’s Office of Executive Education.

These scholarships are made possible by the generous support of Dean Judy Olian, and we encourage those of you with interest in attending to apply and/or share this special opportunity with members of your organization at the Management and Senior Professional (MSP) level.

The three scholarship opportunities are:

UCLA Anderson Diverse Leadership Development Programs

UCLA Multidimensional Leaders’ Institute

March 24, 2015 – July 14, 2015
On-campus session: May 18 – 21, 2015 

UCLA Banco Santander W30 Program: Developing Women Leaders in University Faculty and Administration

June 16 – 18, 2015 

UCLA Women’s Leadership Institute

August 25, 2015 – December 10, 2015 
On-campus session: October 19 - 22, 2015 


Program Descriptions

UCLA Multidimensional Leaders’ Institute: The Anderson School has consolidated several of its previous diversity programs into a new combined program entitled Multidimensional Leaders’ Institute. The program brings together managers from diverse ethnic backgrounds, as well as individuals from the LGBT community and individuals with disabilities. This new, comprehensive Multidimensional Leaders’ Institute replaces the previous diversity institutes at Anderson.

UCLA Banco Santander W30 Program: This program will be open to faculty and staff at the Assistant Dean, Associate Dean, or higher levels. It is specifically designed to develop female leaders with interest and experience in University administration.

UCLA Women’s Leadership Institute: This highly successful program has been offered by Anderson in recent years and is ideal for leaders with five or more years of experience managing people and projects.

Scholarship Applications

The deadline for scholarship applications is November 5, 2014. An announcement of the Scholarships will be made in early January 2015. One scholarship is offered for each Program.

An application form for the Chancellor’s Diversity Leadership Scholarships can be found in Related Information. Interested employees should send a completed application, resume, and letter of support from their manager, to Julia Sanchez at juliasanchez@chr.ucla.edu.

For those not selected for a scholarship, we encourage eligible and interested employees to consider this developmental opportunity and apply directly to UCLA Anderson for their program of interest. A 30% employee discount is available for eligible UCLA employees. Early application is recommended, since space is limited.
