CS Scholars Application

The UC Berkeley Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences invites you to apply to the CS Scholars Program! CS Scholars offers a learning community for undeclared Letters and Science students interested in the computer science major, engineering undeclared, and declared EECS majors. In this program, students will receive comprehensive, tailored support based on their individual needs, including a cohort-based discussion section for CS 61A and CS 61B, advising, study groups and a community of fellow students interested in computer science. CS Scholars is a diverse community of Berkeley students committed to the success of one another.

Because CS Scholars derives its strength from its diversity, all UC Berkeley undergraduates are eligible to apply to the program.

Selection of members involves an electronic application. The applications for fall 2015 is now open. Students are selected using the following criteria:

• All applicants must have an interest in a computer science and a demonstrated commitment to collaborative learning

• There is no GPA or SAT score requirements

• First priority is given to under-resourced, CS under-served and first generation college students

• Next priority is given to applicants who have participated in academic development programs (including Summer Bridge, EAOP, Upward Bound, MESA, CS Kickstart, PREP) or students with a demonstrated commitment to providing service to under-served communities. Priority is also given to Letters and Science CS intended majors.

• If space is still available, all others interested in the program are considered. CS intended students please note that the CS Scholars program does not guarantee acceptance into the CS major, the program is designed to facilitate matriculation into the major.
