  • A Groundbreaking Year We are pleased to report that UCLA TFT broke records during the 2015-16 academic year: More than 800 supporters made donations to the School; one-third of the student population became scholarship recipients; and support to the TFT Fund increased by 50%.
  • STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS Each year UCLA TFT awards more than $1 million to our students. These scholarships underwrite much-needed funding for thesis projects and tuition fees, giving our students the tools to achieve excellence.
  • TFT FUND The TFT Fund has a profound impact in sustaining our unique interdisciplinary programs, by providing critical funds for equipment, technology and research.

For your support of our work, on and off stage, behind and in front of the camera, in the classroom and in research pursuits, we say:
