Portraits of scholars, Cheryl Yang, Maxwell Rodman, and Marta Tobar

The Leadership Award is a one-year, merit-based scholarship that recognizes undergraduate students at UC Berkeley who demonstrate innovative, initiative-driven leadership impacting their academic, work, or community environments. The Leadership Award recipients represent a diverse cross-section of the Cal community and come from all over the world. 

Distribution of The Leadership Award would not be possible without the dedication and hard work of our alumni volunteers who participate in application readings and finalist interviews. Every year, Cal alumni worldwide dedicate their time to help find the next class of inspirational leaders at Berkeley.
