Named Scholarships

Scholarship Description
"Named" scholarships are awarded from gifts to Caltech given for scholarship purposes, and are named by or for the donor. All aid applicants who have demonstrated need and meet the specifications of the donor are automatically considered for a "named" scholarship. Recipients may be asked to write a thank-you letter to one or more donors. Many donors are lifelong friends of the Institute, and they appreciate hearing about student life at Caltech today.
