About Alumni Scholarship

Dear Prospective Applicant,

Berkeley Model United Nations (BMUN) is a non-profit organization on the UC Berkeley campus dedicated to continuing its six decades of excellence as the world’s premier — and very first — Model UN conference. Over 1,900 students attend the conference every year to improve their public speaking and policy debate skills.

The BMUN Secretariat and Alumni are dedicated to providing financial aid to students, who cannot afford to attend the conference. Individual delegates can apply for this assistance to cover part of the cost of attending BMUN, including delegate fees, transportation, and hotel costs. For the BMUN 66th Session, we have significantly increased the scholarship amount. We strongly encourage all students in need to apply.
