How Gifts Make a Difference

Gifts to graduate education equip Berkeley with the power to recruit and support the best and brightest minds to join our stellar community of more than 11,000 graduate scholars. These future thought-leaders preserve and further our excellence across more than 100 distinguished graduate programs — many of which rank among the top in the world.

The Graduate Division serves our students and faculty through the orchestration of a wide range of campus fellowships, support for diversity resources and initiatives, programs and activities to ensure a quality graduate student experience, and a variety of resources and training opportunities that enhance professional development.

Gifts to the Graduate Division can benefit individual schools and colleges or entire fields of study, and they always catalyze the capacity of Berkeley’s unparalleled graduate community and propel our progress. With your support, Berkeley’s graduate community continues to advance every professional field and to generate new knowledge that changes the world.
