Letter from your mentor

You must identify someone who has agreed to be your mentor for your project. Although all Prize winners are expected to show independence in carrying out their projects, the mentor should be someone who can advise you as you work on your project. Your mentor may be a faculty member, but need not be a faculty member.

Additional letters

You must supply at least one additional letter of recommendation, and you may supply up to three additional letters of support from people or organizations whose cooperation will contribute to your project’s success. If your mentor is not a faculty member, at least one of the additional letters of recommendation must be from someone who has taught you at UC Berkeley.

Please provide all letter-writers with a copy of your project proposal and budget.

Letters of Recommendation can be requested using the online application system, or if needed, sent directly to stronachbaccprize@berkeley.edu
