Robinson International Scholars Program

The purpose of the Robinson International Scholars Program is to enrich Berkeley’s culture of global learning and discovery by developing transformational leaders, and to support a cohort of high-achieving international students who are refugees or stateless individuals from Sub-Saharan African and developing nations, as defined by the United Nations; or who have graduated from secondary school in a Sub-Saharan African or developing nation, as defined by the United Nations. Recipients have a demonstrated commitment to give back to their community, country, or continent, and/or an intention to return to their home country. There is no application process for this program, as candidates are selected for consideration through their Regents’ and Chancellor’s Scholarship eligibility.


This scholarship fund was made possible through the vision and generosity of Stephanie A. Robinson & Mark J. Robinson, and is part of the larger Regents’ and Chancellor’s Scholarship initiative.
