2) Spectrum Scholars

The Spectrum Scholarship Program was established in 1997, when the American Library Association committed resources for 50 annual scholarships of $5,000 a year for Spectrum’s first four years. The Spectrum program continues to fund scholarships through the initial endowment and the generous contributions of individuals and organizations whose donations support named scholarships in the Spectrum Family of Funds.

The University of California, Los Angeles endeavors to match the Spectrum award for all Spectrum Scholars. The award is determined annually pending availability of funds.
