The Berkeley Undergraduate Scholarship is the University of California's most historic program, and recognizes the academic merits of undergraduates. Each year 2,500 students receive a Berkeley Undergraduate Scholarship, funded from one or more of our 800 university and private philanthropy funds. There is no application process other than applying for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act Application.
The Division of Student Affairs hosts many events each year to honor and recognize donors for their generous contributions.
