If you receive an invitation to apply for alumni scholarships, know that the alumni associations obtain the contact information and general profile of applicants from the admissions office and send out invitations based on criteria the alumni associations determined to reflect the type of students they want for the scholarships. The process is separate from admission evaluation as the alumni associations are different entities (typically they are set up as a nonprofit loosely affiliated with the university). Receiving an invitation has no bearing on your admission status and you may apply for the scholarships regardless of whether you received an invitation (for the UCs that have a scholarship application process that is open to everyone).
