Transfer Center Workshops

UC & CSU Application Workshops
Located: Lesher 102




Greetings from UC Berkeley!

The Transfer-to-Excellence Research Summer Research Program at UC Berkeley is now accepting applications for summer 2022. This is a great paid opportunity for California community college students in STEM. Please share with your colleagues and students.

We will be hosting four online information sessions, starting this Monday at noon. These sessions are opportunities for students to learn more about undergraduate research, how to find positions as a CC student, tips for applying, and the specifics of the Transfer-to-Excellence program. The dates and registration link can be found here.

Our summer 2022 program will offer research opportunities throughout the field of engineering. Due to a recent increase in funding, we strongly encourage students interested in computer science to apply.

Very best wishes,


2022 Transfer-to-Excellence Summer Research Program

Tentative Dates: June 10–August 13, 2022
Location: UC Berkeley campus
