2016 Gardner Fellows from Berkeley and Stanford

The John Gardner Fellowship is open to December 2016 and May 2017 graduates of UC Berkeley. The Gardner Fellowship program places 3 fellows from Berkeley and 3 fellows from Stanford every year in nonprofit or governmental organizations that most closely fits their public sector interests. Each fellow receives a $32,000 stipend and is matched with a senior-level mentor during their 10-month fellowship. The goal of the John Gardner Fellowship is to encourage UC Berkeley’s and Stanford's best students to pursue a career in public service.

SLC Mastering the Social Sciences Workshop Series

The Student Learning Center (SLC) Social Science Program is happy to announce the Mastering the Social Sciences Workshop Series at the SLC

We designed these workshops for incoming first-year students, new transfer students, and continuing students hoping to improve their learning process. The goal of the workshops is to support students taking social science courses by providing strategies and organizing tools that are essential for mastery.

Confirmation notices and room locations will be provided once students RSVP.   All students are welcome to attend any or all of these free workshops occurring during the first two weeks of classes.
