“My biggest fear in coming to Cal was the fear of failure,” says CAA Alumni Scholar Wasseem Syriani ’19, a student in the new CAA Scholar Success Seminar enabled by iPad tablets and Apple software. “This class gave me confidence and the ability to believe more in myself.” Developed in partnership with Berkeley’s Centers for Educational Equity and Excellence (CE3), the Scholar Success Seminar ensures that CAA Alumni Scholars enter the University with the skills and resources they need to succeed at UC Berkeley.
Thanks to this collaboration with Apple, new recipients of The Kruttschnitt Aspire Scholarship Program (KASP) and The Achievement Award Program (TAAP) are equipped with the latest in tablet technology and specialized software. Each iPad is pre-loaded with iPad Air2 software including Pages, Keynote, iMovie, and iTunes, while the iPad-enabled seminars promote wellness, achievement, and professional success.
CAA’s mission to deliver the promise of Berkeley to KASP and TAAP scholars is made possible through the generous contributions of Cal alumni and friends.
