Funding Your Future

Education is life-changing. Our innovative financial aid programs make a world class education a reality for thousands of Berkeley students every year. This includes more than $750 million awarded in financial aid annually. We take pride in knowing that 38% of students pay nothing out of pocket for tuition due to grants and scholarships and that around two-thirds of students receive some form of financial aid. Funding your future is possible.
