UC Berkeley Scholarship: The Beverly Mullins Memorial Scholarship
The Mullins family along with the UC Berkeley California Re-entry Alumni Chapter have come together to create a needs-based scholarship for Single parent re-entry students, doing full-time study at UC Berkeley. The Beverly Mullins Memorial Scholarship is in memory of Beverly Mullins, a 1998 Graduate from the Department of Sociology.

Beverly attended UC Berkeley as a single mother with no outside financial support. She was challenged to focus on both her studies and the responsibility of raising her son, Jacob. Today, Jacob is a graduate of Yale University, a testament to Beverly’s love, focus and determination to create, for him, a better life. The goal of the Beverly Mullins Memorial Scholarship is to help other single parents also achieve success for themselves and their families. More information on the family and the background of the scholarship is available here.

This scholarship is currently inactive. We have awarded 8 scholarships between 2001 and 2010.

We are very excited to announce the recipient of a new scholarship my family has created, Shannon Swan an Anthropology major at UC Berkeley. The Future Women Leaders scholarship was created out of a need to help support future women leaders that are dedicated to empowering and/or giving back to women in their community or around the world.

Shannon Swan inspired us 2 years ago when she applied for the Beverly Mullins Memorial Scholarship (BMMS) for single re-entry parents working on their undergraduate degree. At the time we had been considering a new scholarship, but hadn’t fulling lay the ground work for it. Once Shannon applied for the Beverly Mullins Memorial scholarship again, we knew it was time to officially announce the new scholarship and select her as our first recipient due to the work she is doing.

I don’t yet have a bio on Shannon, but hope to soon! Follow her on twitter at @hominidsrus.
