The status and preliminary results for the Angular Correlation Function (ACF) of rest-UV selected galaxies in GALEX deep fields are presented. This first determination of the ACF of UV-selected galaxies at z~1 rests on more than 5,000 galaxies brighter than NUV AB magnitude 24, in a 0.5 degree radius area. The slope of the ACF is found similar to that observed for star-forming galaxies selected at visible wavelengths in the local Universe, and for LBGs at z~3. We discuss the evolution of the bias of the rest-UV selected galaxies between z~0 and z~3. GALEX is a NASA SMEX mission developped in collaboration with France and Korea.
