Scholarships are an excellent resource for students seeking help with the cost of their education while reducing the dependence on loans to cover educational expenses.
Provided by the generosity of the Carlston Family Partnership, these funds will be used to provide support for high-achieving graduate students in the Master of Financial Engineering Program at the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley. Recipients will be students who demonstrate financial need and strong ethics.
