STEM*FYI, a program within the Office for Graduate Diversity, is dedicated to increasing the success and retention of historically underrepresented students among all graduate STEM fields at UC Berkeley. Through the support of the PPG Foundation (ppg.com), we have launched these $500 grants to aid graduate STEM students at UC Berkeley.

Students are eligible to receive STEM*FYI awards only ONCE per academic year.
