The Cal Pride Scholarship
The Cal Pride Scholarship is a one-year, merit-based award that recognizes Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors at UC Berkeley and incoming transfer students for academic achievement, leadership, and community involvement, as well as their contribution to the LGBTQ community. Previous recipients of the Cal Pride Scholarship are not eligible to re-apply.
Please take due care when responding to the essays presented, as those students selected for finalist interviews are often chosen on the basis of the thought and consideration of their responses. Successful applicants are often those who spend more time on the essays and are able to articulate their positions clearly in subsequent in-person interviews.
Applications open September 1, 2022 and close October 3, 2022.
