Scholarship Selection

Help support the selection of exceptional candidates for our scholarships during our scholarships season, which runs from March through September. With over 850 awards distributed each year, we invite UC Berkeley alumni to support the selection of exceptional candidates for our scholarships. From marketing and outreach to application readings and candidate interviews, alumni are integral to the successful selection of our scholarship recipients. 

Application readers are an integral part of our scholarship selection process. Upon completion of a mandatory training, readers will evaluate and score applications virtually or at any of our scholarship application readings.
Each year, interviewers work with local Scholarship Chairs to interview applicants nationally and internationally for our scholarships.
Scholarship Chairs lead and manage local volunteers to support the selection of scholarship recipients.
Black and African American identified Cal alumni are invited to support the African American Initiative scholarship selection process.
