University of California, Berkeley
The Regents’ and Chancellor’s Scholars Association (RCSA) is dedicated to fostering a community for Regents’ and Chancellor’s Scholarship recipients at the University of California, Berkeley. By hosting a diverse set of events, from alumni industry dinners to faculty game nights, RCSA provides around 900 scholars with numerous opportunities to connect with others and share vital resources. Membership is an included benefit of the scholarship, and scholars can extend their involvement by joining one of the nine committees.
The Internal Branch, lead by the Internal Vice Presidents, encompasses communities within the UC Berkeley campus, from current scholars to faculty.
The External Branch, lead by the External Vice Presidents, fosters our relationship with groups beyond the UC Berkeley campus, including graduated scholars and the surrounding community.
The Operations Branch, lead by the Chief Operating and Financial Officers, helps facilitate the day-to-day communication of events and presentation of information within the organization.
