Scholarship Connection is UC Berkeley's clearinghouse for information on scholarships that are funded by sources outside the University. We receive hundreds of scholarship notices each year. Competition for these awards may be local, national, or international in scope, and scholarship deadlines and requirements vary.
Students may search for scholarships on Scholarship Connection's online database. To stay up to date on available awards, enrolled UC Berkeley students may also subscribe to the Scholarship Connection listserv. Subscribers receive biweekly e-mail updates on scholarships and related opportunities.
The Scholarship Connection office encourages students to investigate other scholarship resources available on- and off-campus.
In addition to providing information on many externally-funded scholarships, Scholarship Connection also administers the application pro cess for several highly competitive and prestigious scholarships, such as the Rhodes, Marshall and Truman Scholarships. Most of these awards require a campus endorsement before the applications can be forwarded to the final levels of competition. The Scholarship Connection office offers workshops and individual advising to help applicants prepare competitive applications for these awards.
