The Kruttschnitt Aspire Scholarship Program (KASP) is named in recognition of a legacy commitment made by Cal alumnus, local business and community leader, Theodore (Ted) H. Kruttschnitt ’64. The scholarship provides an economic incentive for California’s high-achieving, underrepresented minority students to attend Cal. To help close the financial gap for these students, CAA awards them $6,000 per academic year to incoming freshman and junior transfer students. In addition to financial aid, the KASP Scholars will receive the guidance and resources necessary to succeed at the number one public university in the world.
As a nonprofit organization independent from the University, CAA is in the unique position to address the challenge of increasing the number of underrepresented minority students on campus and closing the financial gap that often prohibits prospective students from attending Cal.
CAA is paving the way to ensure Cal reflects and represents the diverse demographics of California. Your donation to The Kruttschnitt Aspire Scholarship Program provides scholarships to the best and brightest underrepresented minority students attending Cal.
*UC Berkeley has identified African-Americans, Chicanos/Latinos, and Native Americans as underrepresented minorities on campus.
