The Kravis Scholars are a group of students with diverse interests and backgrounds including their academic majors, professional pursuits, geographical upbringings, and life experiences. These students share common qualities of leadership and resilience while overcoming great adversities during their youth. These unique interests are part of what make the Kravis Scholar community so strong and such a unique asset to Claremont McKenna College. The Kravis Scholarship makes it possible for these students to attend CMC, share their experiences with other students, and chart their own course.
As freshmen, these students receive a summer stipend for a sponsored internship of their choosing. Kravis Scholars also receive mentorship and support through the Kravis Leadership Institute during their college careers.
