In Scholars' Words: Your Support Means Everything

  • “Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for listening to our struggles and our stories and for allowing every scholar to feel that success is within their reach.”

  • “Finances are a significant concern for me, especially as a self-financed student. This scholarship greatly reduces my college expenses, and therefore, allows me to focus on my academics and pursue opportunities that will benefit my career.”

  • “When I received my email saying that I had been awarded this scholarship, I could not stop smiling.... I will always remember the surge of happiness I felt in the moment when I received the email. Thank you for supporting me, thank you for taking your time to interview me, and thank you for creating a positive impact in my life.”

  • “Thanks to this scholarship, I can decrease my work study hours and focus more on studying and becoming part of the Berkeley community. As a transfer student, I only have two years to enjoy everything that Cal has to offer and the CAA Alumni Scholarship will be a key element in my having the best Berkeley experience.”

  • “For me, being a Leadership Award scholar means that I have the grit and determination it takes to be successful here at UC Berkeley.”

  • “It gives me confidence to be recognized as a Leadership Award scholar for accomplishments I have made in my life, and the award encourages me to endeavor to be a better leader in the community.”
