Thanks to the African American Initiative Scholarship, 28 African American students can afford to attend Berkeley this fall. Through the scholarships each student will receive $8,000 annually. Once fully funded at $20 million, the endowed scholarship fund will provide admitted African American undergraduate students an annual financial incentive.
