Scholarships

Coop members who received a scholarship.

To better serve our mission of providing affordable housing to those who need it, the BSC offers scholarships that lower your rent by 1/6 or more! All full-time students can apply for the BSC Scholarship, which is distributed as rent credit at the BSC after you have accepted a BSC housing offer. BSC Scholarships are awarded on the basis of need after verification from the student's school.

The majority of our scholarships are actually funded by BSC member rents! 

BSC Scholarships are also funded by donations. We thank our alumni and friends who support our mission with their generosity and encouragement!

The Berkeley Student Cooperative Scholarship for 2020-21 is open for current members AND prospective students
