The Equity Scholarship began in 2008 as part of an initiative to make UC Berkeley a more diverse campus by recognizing high-achieving African-American, Chicano/Latino, and Native American students. Beginning in 2015, The Equity Scholarship will transform into a bigger and more impactful scholarship program, and will be re-named The Kruttschnitt Aspire Scholarship Program (KASP) in recognition of a legacy commitment made by Cal alumnus, local business and community leader, Theodore (Ted) H. Kruttschnitt ’64. Mr. Kruttschnitt’s generous commitment allows CAA to offer significant financial assistance to a larger group of scholars and establish innovative programming —a combination proven to be key educational success drivers for minority students.
CAA is very excited about this new opportunity for both our current and future scholars. Please visit The Kruttschnitt Aspire Scholarship Program page for more information about this new expanded program, and check out the official press release.
