Dear Advisor,

One of your students has applied for the Berkeley Model United Nations 65th Session Alumni Scholarship. In order for their scholarship application to be considered complete, both this student application submitted by the student and this School Advisor Recommendation must be submitted by December 23, 2016 in order for your delegate to be considered for financial aid.

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 1,500 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 65th Session, we have significantly increased the scholarship amount. All students in need are strongly encouraged to apply.

Important Deadlines

September 12, 2016 - Alumni Scholarship Application is released and ready for submissions
December 23, 2016 – Student Application deadline. Both this student application and School Advisor Recommendation must be submitted by this date
January 9, 2017 – Scholarship announcement via email
January 16, 2017 – Scholarship acceptance deadline
March 3, 2017 to March 5, 2017 – BMUN 65 Conference. Scholarship checks are available for pickup at registration and OPI during the conference. Students must provide receipts or proof of payment in order to receive check

The financial aid is need-based for expenses directly related to the conference, transportation, hotel, and registration fees. In this application we ask for personal information regarding your student's finances that we believe will help us to determine the financial aid required for each applicant. We therefore ask that advisors explain the student's financial situation to the best of their knowledge in all applicable areas to increase the student's chances of receiving financial aid. All information will be treated with utmost confidentiality and will be used only for financial aid purposes.

In order for your student's scholarship application to be considered complete, both the student application submitted by the student and this School Advisor Recommendation must be submitted by December 23, 2016 in order for your student to be considered for financial aid. Please do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail at treasurer@bmun.org with questions or concerns.

Best,
Sherry Guo
Treasurer
Berkeley Model United Nations, 65th Session

Advisor/Teacher Recommendation
As part of the Alumni Scholarship application, the BMUN Secretariat would like to hear from the student's MUN advisor. The MUN class or club advisor should fill out this School Advisor Recommendation. If the student does not have a MUN class/club advisor, a teacher or faculty member that knows the student well should fill out the form. It is confidential and should be sent separately from the student’s part of the application. Applications without a completed advisor recommendation form will NOT be considered.
