    Historical Note

    The Affiliates is a non-profit association of alumni, faculty, and community friends of UCLA. It was formed in 1937 by Mrs. Edward A. Dickson and Countess Frederic Thorne-Rider when the Gold Shield alumnae association abandoned its support of a faculty lecture series for women in the community.
    Regular meetings have been held featuring the University's most distinguished speakers chosen from a wide variety of scholarly disclipines. Several special events are offered each year: a membership tea, luncheon and dinner programs, and a dinner honoring UCLA's Fulbright Scholars. In addtion, the year is highlighted with a special gathering honoring the recipients of The Affiliates' scholarship.
    Since 1948, The Affiliates has supported the UCLA Alumni Association Scholarship Program from its own endowed funds, as well as from the ongoing contributions of members. One such fund was endowed in 1975 by Hortense Fishbaugh, a former president of The Affiliates. The organization now awards over $40,000 dollars annually to undergraduate and community college transfer students, as well as to students in the Graduate Division and in the professional schools of Law, Medicine, Dentistry, and Fine Arts.
