Undergraduate Scholarships

Cal Opportunity Scholarship

Campus BuildingUC Berkeley's faculty established the Cal Opportunity Scholarship in 2000 to attract high-achieving students who have overcome socio-economic challenges. Newly admitted freshmen students are selected for consideration in early April, after admission decisions have been announced.

Faculty select candidates from the prospective freshmen pool, who come from one of the program's partner high schools in the San Franscisco Bay Area.

Learn more about the Cal Opportunity Scholarship at the Financial Aid Website.
