The five main eligibility criteria are:

  • Excelling academically – All prospective Scholars must first be admitted to UC Berkeley to be considered for the Scholarship.
  • Coming from an economically disadvantaged background – We aim to admit those from the bottom two income quintiles per country.
  • Having demonstrated the will to give back to your community, country, or continent – We are looking for well-rounded students who are engaged in activities beyond the classroom. Some may be directly related to your field of study, but this may also include other issues (social, economic, political) that you are working on and passionate about.

Applicants should elaborate on their achievements both in their application to UC Berkeley, and then later on the Scholarship application.

  • Having expressed the desire and intention to return to your home country after completing your studies – We are looking for students who are engaged with and passionate about issues affecting their communities, and who will take advantage of their education at UC Berkeley to better equip themselves with the knowledge and training to address these issues upon return.
