Twenty Years of Achievement: Stories from the TAAP Community
Over the past 20 years, The Achievement Award Program (TAAP) has supported more than 400 students in earning their Cal education. Many of these scholars are underrepresented and first-generation college students. Their stories include academic and personal challenges that shaped their time at UC Berkeley, as well as the career they chose to pursue after graduation.
As TAAP alumni, these scholars have continued to demonstrate their ambition and community-mindedness through their commitment to inspire and transform their communities and the world around them.
