The Karl S. Pister Leadership Opportunity Awards Program was established in 1993 by former chancellor Karl S. Pister to increase opportunities for talented California community college students who want to transfer to UCSC. Awards are $10,000 per year for two years. All nominated candidates must have overcome adverse socioeconomic circumstances, have a demonstrated commitment to assisting and improving the lives of others, and have financial aid eligibility.
Candidates are nominated by the presidents of each of the 13 regional community college in California. The nominations are reviewed by the Leadership Opportunity Awards Screening Committee, and one student from each college will be selected to receive the award.
