2017 – 2018 CAA Alumni Scholars

The Cal Alumni Association (CAA) congratulates our incoming 2017 – 2018 Alumni Scholars. 25 TAAP, 26 KASP, and 650 TLA scholars have been selected! It is with confidence and enthusiasm that we look forward to seeing this new cohort of Alumni Scholars make an incredible impact on our campus.

None of what we accomplish together through CAA’s Alumni Scholars Program is possible without the help of thousands of alumni volunteers who participate in application readings and finalist interviews. Every year, many loyal volunteers dedicate their time to helping find the next class of inspirational leaders at UC Berkeley.

Please join us in acknowledging and congratulating our 2017 – 18 incoming Alumni Scholars.
