The Berkeley Promise is a partnership between the Berkeley Community Fund, the City of Berkeley, BUSD, Berkeley City College, CSU East Bay and UC Berkeley. It is a college access and matriculation initiative, which encourages students to earn early college credits and once completing a post secondary degree or certificate, encourages a pathway to higher education at a 4-year institute; OR a pathway directly into a trade or career. Berkeley Promise scholars will have access to financial scholarships, incentive supports such as books and transportation and most importantly to counseling and mentoring services throughout their college experiences.
