Interview Scholarship Finalists

Join fellow Cal alumni to interview scholarship finalists for The Leadership Award (TLA), The Achievement Award Program (TAAP), and/or the Kruttschnitt Aspire Scholarship Program (KASP) while strengthening your connection to Cal, socializing and networking with local alumni, and meeting prospective Cal students.


How It Works

Interview panels are conducted in-person or via Skype. District/Regional Chairs* (Alumni Scholarships super-volunteers) organize and coordinate interviews with local alumni. All interviewers are given an orientation by their District/Regional Chair that includes information about how to assess a candidate’s fit for the scholarship program to which they applied and best practices for interviewing. If you are interested in serving as an interviewer, pre-register below to be contacted by a local district/regional chair.

Interviews are conducted in May and June for incoming freshmen/transfer students and in September for current Cal undergrads.
