The UC Berkeley California Re-entry Alumni Chapter and the Mullins family have come together to crate a needs-based scholarship for Single parent re-entry students, doing full-time studay at UC Berkeley. The 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.
