UCLA Dashew Center Corporate Sponsors

The Dashew Center works closely with local businesses to provide great Dashew Deals for the Dashew Center community. We develop strong relationships with the leadership of all the businesses and we only work with one business per industry in order to ensure that our community is well taken care of! Please see each of the deals below and feel free to contact each of the businesses if you’re interested in the services they offer.

We are so grateful to our sponsors for supporting our programs. Sponsor support allows us to offer programs that make a positive impact on students’ lives, their experience at UCLA, and their time in the US.

Please take a look at our Corporate Sponsorship Program and contact the Corporate Sponsor Coordinator, Jennie Weingarten, at jweingarten@saonet.ucla.edu for more information.

Cell Phone Plan/SIM Card
campusSIMs is the only mobile phone service designed for international students studying in the U.S. They offer no-contract plans on a robust 4G LTE GSM network. You should be receiving a FREE SIM card in the mail before you leave your home country. You can register your SIM card with your current phone from home and acquire a U.S. phone number immediately to give to your friends and family. Then, activate your phone, for as low as $25 per month, immediately upon arrival to the U.S. so that you're never without service! Didn't get it in the mail? Don't worry, the Dashew Center will have FREE SIM cards available to pick up at our center.

Credit Card
With more than 1M international students studying in the US under F, J, and M visas, SelfScore’s mission is to help these deserving students access a U.S. credit card and start establishing a credit history early. As former international students ourselves, we developed a special approval process that goes beyond standard credit scoring. SelfScore identifies financially responsible international students by examining factors that traditional scoring overlooks including education, source of funding, and future employability — without requiring a Social Security number or a credit history to apply.
