The application period is open now and closes April 12, 2018. Application instructions and more details are at We especially encourage submissions from lower division students, whose projects are judged separately from those of upper division students. More details are available on the website.

Eligible applicants must be Berkeley undergraduates at any class level. They may come from any discipline.

You can also encourage students from previous semesters to apply. They must have completed their research projects for a course at UCB in one of the following terms:

  • Lower division: Spring 2017, Summer 2017, Fall 2017, Spring 2018
