The Berkeley Edge Conference is designed to encourage underrepresented minority students who are competitively eligible for Berkeley's Ph.D. programs to plan to apply to UC Berkeley. Approximately fifty students are chosen from the applications submitted.
Please visit their website to apply: http://ls.berkeley.edu/diversity/bep/conf/
If selected, they cover costs for your trip to Berkeley. The application has 2 parts: one to be filled out by the student applicant, and another by the person recommending them.
