Each year the Japanese American Women Alumnae of UC Berkeley (JAWAUCB) provides scholarships to four to six undergraduate and graduate women of Asian American descent. As a chartered alumni chapter of the Cal Alumni Association, JAWAUCB partners with UC Berkeley’s Fund Stewardship Department and the UC Berkeley Office of Financial Aid to ensure our scholarships are distributed and that bequests, donations and gifts to our organization are utilized for our scholarships.
Students who apply for financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), are considered for JAWAUCB scholarships. The UC Berkeley Office of Financial Aid manages the selection according to the following preferences:
Due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the UC Berkeley Office of Financial Aid cannot provide the amounts of our scholarships. Award amounts are different for each student as they make up a portion of that student’s financial aid package. Student award packages are based on a variety of factors such as their expected family contribution as submitted through FAFSA®, grants, or outside scholarships. These factors may change throughout the year for each individual student. For example, a student’s expected family contribution can change or they may receive more money in federal grants. This means that student award amounts may change throughout the year.
A complete list of scholarship recipients since 1970 is available upon request. Please contact us at email@example.com.
