The George A. Miller Scholars Program provides outstanding community college transfer students the opportunity to develop leadership, research or community service skills and apply them in practice. Each year up to 12 low-income, first-generation students are selected based on their leadership potential, academic excellence, and commitment to community service and education. As a close-knit group of 10-12 students, Miller Scholars benefit from individualized personal attention and guidance that helps them transition to Berkeley, succeed academically, and develop skills to ensure long term success. Miller Scholars receive an $8,000 stipend for two years, including $2,600 in the summer. Miller participants pick between two tracks: academic research or community service.
