“Through its scholarships and mentoring programs, the UCLA Center for Excellence in Engineering and Diversity (CEED) provides students from groups that are traditionally underrepresented with opportunities to succeed at UCLA and beyond, broadening the pool of diverse engineers entering the field upon graduation. About 330 undergraduates currently participate in CEED, making up approximately 8% of the UCLA engineering student body.
“In a recent interview, we spoke with two CEED alumni who shared their personal experience with the program.”
