Description. These awards are given by departments in recognition of distinguished undergraduate work. The Departmental Citation Plan was initiated in 1955 by the Committee on Prizes with the approval and support of the Chancellor. It is open to all departments wishing to participate. An individual major program within Undergraduate and Interdisciplinary Studies (UGIS) also may participate as if it were a department, if it has sufficiently excellent undergraduates who are unlikely to be awarded the citation from any one department.
Description. A medal and $2,500 are awarded to the most distinguished graduating senior on the UC Berkeley campus. Three to five finalists each receive a Certificate of Distinction and $500. Prize awards are coordinated with the winner's financial aid package when necessary.* Students identified as meeting the preliminary requirements are contacted during the fall semester to alert them as to their standing and to confirm that they will graduate no later than the following summer.
Description. This is a University of California systemwide endowment. The award, approximately $270, differs from year to year and is determined by the fund amount and the number of awardees. If you are receiving financial aid, the award is coordinated with your financial aid package.*
