Awards and Honors
A history of world changers. And we’re just getting started.

With 15 Nobel Laureates, 15 MacArthur Fellows, 119 NCAA championships and more Olympic medals than most nations, UCLA has become a household name synonymous with academic and athletic excellence. Because of this storied history it’s easy to imagine that we’ve been around forever, when in fact, UCLA turned a youthful 100 in 2019. In other words, we’re just getting started.
