In collaboration with the UC Berkeley Graduate Division, International House holds a competition for one-year awards (Gateway Fellowships) for first-year or continuing graduate students in a Doctoral Program at UC Berkeley. Priority preference is given to new incoming graduate students, and only those with financial need are eligible.
Award recipients receive one academic year of single-occupancy room and board at International House, fees and tuition paid by the student’s academic department, and a $5,000 stipend from the University of California Graduate Division. To be considered for this award, applicants must be admitted to UC Berkeley for the coming academic year, able to reside in a single-occupancy room at International House, and are nominated by their academic department; or they may apply directly with the support of their department.
Graduate students who are returned Peace Corps students and international students who are citizens of or have a strong connection to Egypt, Saudi Arabia, or Norway are especially sought to best meet donor preferences. Ph.D. students in physics or astrophysics or related (U.S. or international) are also sought.
