Miller Scholars

The George A. Miller Scholars Program provides community college transfer students the opportunity to develop leadership, research or community service skills and apply them in practice. Miller Scholars participate in a two year program, receiving individualized personal attention and guidance that helps them transition to UC Berkeley, succeed academically, and develop skills to ensure long-term success. Students spend the first academic year developing research and leadership skills while they plan an academic research or community service project, which they conduct under the guidance of a faculty mentor during the summer after their first year at Berkeley. The second year of the program prepares scholars for life after graduation, either in preparing them to apply for graduate or professional school, or in searching for and securing a job in their area of interest. Based on financial need, each year Miller Scholars can receive up to $5000 in scholarships.
