Any individual wishing to attend the University of California, Berkeley, who is a member of one of the aforementioned groups is eligible to apply for a scholarship award. The scholarships are $1,000 for each year of attendance at the University. So long as the recipients meet certain minimum standards, the scholarships are receivable for four years so that each award may be valued at $4,000. Up to ten scholarships are awarded for the fall semester of each academic year and up to three scholarships are awarded for the spring semester of each academic year.
The Spring semester scholarships are available to freshman, first year transfer students who attend the University and who did not apply for a scholarship before becoming a student and disabled students. These awards are for $500 for the first semester and $1,000 per year for each additional year up to a total of four years so that each of these awards may be valued at $3,500.
The Foundation makes these scholarship awards to encourage students to attend and stay at the Berkeley campus. The awards are not mailed directly to the recipients. Rather, the funds are deposited with the campus undergraduate financial aid office to be credited toward tuition or any other payments due from the recipient once he/she enrolls on the Berkeley campus.
