OURS National Scholarships

The OURS National Scholarships Office manages the applications and nominations process for a number of presetigious scholarships and awards. http://scholarships.berkeley.edu/overview

Most of these awards require a campus endorsement before the applications can be forwarded to the final levels of competition. To help students prepare competitive applications, Alicia Hayes, the Program Manager and Advisor, offers individual advising and occasional workshops on selecting recommenders, preparing compelling personal statements, interviewing, and developing project proposals or proposed programs of study. Advance preparation for these awards is essential. Eligible candidates should arrange an advising appointment early in the process.


To stay up to date on available awards, enrolled UC Berkeley students may subscribe for biweekly e-mail updates on scholarships and related opportunities. We encourage students to investigate other scholarship resources available on- and off-campus.
