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.
Up to $5,000 will be awarded to a selected student each academic year.

We have awarded scholarships to single re-entry students since 2002. The scholarship selection committee: Dianna Mullins, Helen Johnson, Jacob Mullins, Rudi Gewing-Mullins, RosieMarie Mullins and Nikki Dones.
