Together, let's expand ATDP's Pathway Scholarship!

UC Berkeley’s Academic Talent Development Program (ATDP) offers challenging summer classes for high achieving and motivated young scholars.

At ATDP, we believe ALL highly motivated and prepared students should have the opportunity to pursue their academic passions and engage with high quality and rigorous coursework. Stemming from this belief, ATDP has awarded 20 full-ride Pathway Scholarships since its launch in 2021. This year, the Pathway Scholarship program has been revamped to focus on Secondary Division students applying for in-person courses. We are excited to roll out this change because it will allow us to offer more in-person mentorship, community, and academic skill building to Pathway Scholars over the summer.

This year we hope to provide AT LEAST 10 more Pathway Scholarships!

 “I didn’t think I was a smart person […] but once I was in it, I put in a lot of effort! I learned a lot about new topics and the class was really fun. […] Everyone was respectful and open-minded and you could speak your mind.” 

—Former Pathway Scholar

By giving to the Pathway Scholarship program, you ensure that more students like the one above are recognized for their academic efforts, as well as given the opportunity to learn with and from the outstanding community of educators and students at ATDP. 

A gift of any amount can help us continue the Pathway Scholarship program and make a difference for a future ATDP student. 

•    $1,000 will cover the tuition, supplies and fees for one student. 

•    $250-$500 will cover about 50% tuition for one student.

•    $100 covers supplies for one student.
