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.

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.
