Welcome to the Frequently Asked Questions page. Below, we have tried to answer the most common questions visitors to this our website may have. If you find that your question is not answered on this page, please feel free to email us: ewbucla@gmail.com. 

How do I join EWB-UCLA? Do I need to apply to become a member?
No. If you are interested in what EWB-UCLA does, just come to our meetings!

When and where are general meetings held?
General meetings are every Tuesdays 6:15pm in Engineering IV, room 38-138.  This is the large meeting/classroom next to the mechanical engineering TA rooms. If you are a new student, Engineering IV is the building you see driving up Westwood that reads "Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science".  The room is on the third floor, on the side of the building with the patio visible from the windows. 

I can’t make it to the meetings but I want to be involved! What do I do?

Email us with your interests, general time commitment, and questions. We can communicate through email and set up coffee break meetings or phone calls to discuss your involvement further. 

I’m not an engineer but I love what you do.  Will that be a problem?
Absolutely not. We have all walks of life in our group- including business, biology, and English majors.  Our projects are successful because everyone has something unique and different to offer. 

What are the costs for traveling?
Each project team tries to raise the entirety of the budget. The more money that is raised from fundraisers and grants, the less money traveling members will have to pay. The details of the costs are worked out within each team.

How are traveling members determined?
Project leaders will have the main say. We ultimately try to accept members who have shown the most involvement and seem most invested in the projects.

I represent a different student group and am interesting in collaborating on a project. How do we go about doing this?

Again, email us, and we can figure it out.  We are always interested in working with other student groups who are similarly minded.

I or my company want to make a donation, monetary or equipment-related.  Is EWB-UCLA a non-profit and are all donations tax-deductible?
We accept donations of many kinds and yes are a registered non-profit, through UCLA.  If you would like to make a donation, it is 100% tax-deductible.
