Under the umbrella of the Berkeley Business Excellence Program, the Berkeley Scholars program gives selected students personalized advising, mentorship, and advanced career opportunities. The program helps them excel as students and as future business leaders.
Beginning in 2021, 6 first-year students will be chosen each autumn via an application process to be Berkeley Scholars, creating a cohort of 24 students by 2025. Berkeley Scholars are expected sign a learning agreement, attend monthly programs and advising sessions, and track their progress through the program.
In addition to focused advising and mentoring, other benefits for Berkeley Scholars include: attending skill developing bootcamps, pre-registration for PCSB courses, access to financial support for experiential learning opportunities, and exclusive programs and networking opportunities designed to identify career pathways and build networks.
The Berkeley Scholar application for the PCSB Class of 2026 will be available in fall 2022.
