Letter from the Chair

Welcome to the first issue of Berkeley Scholarship Stories, a newsletter about Cal’s talented, inspirational scholarship recipients and the generous donors who make their Berkeley experiences possible.

I am proud that Berkeley enrolls the highest percentage of top-achieving, low- and middle-income students of any elite college in the country. Scholarships make it possible for the university to attract exceptional students, who in turn help Berkeley to maintain its reputation as the number one public university in the world. Your support changes students’ lives, raises up entire families, and enables the campus to continue this proud tradition. Thank you.

Jill Duerr Berrick
Professor, School of Social Welfare and Chair of the Academic Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Honors, and Financial Aid
