Financial Aid

I-House impacts the world by producing global citizens equipped with stellar leadership skills and intercultural expertise. Fulfilling this mission begins by ensuring students from diverse national and socioeconomic backgrounds can access the “I-House Experience.

International House Berkeley room and board scholarship support funding opportunities are currently between application processes. Those individuals applying for residency in 2015-16 and interested in applying for room and board support, should return to this page in late spring 2015 for financial aid information. Those who have paid their deposit for a room reservation will receive an email notice when the financial aid application process opens.

Any upper division or greater, domestic or international student registered in a UC Berkeley degree-seeking program with a confirmed Regular room reservation at I-House Berkeley and are eligible. (Financial aid is not awarded to foreign exchange students, summer-session students, extension students, or those not enrolled in UC Berkeley degree-granting programs.)
Note that rooms fill up quickly, so it is best to apply for residency as soon as the application becomes available.  The room reservation cancellation deadline will be aligned with prior notice of room and board financial aid awards to assist candidates.
