Due to the volume of applications we receive each year for our Experience Berkeley Mentorship Program for High School Students, we are unable to offer admission to all who apply to our Mentorship Program. Students who apply, but are not accepted into our Mentorship Program, will automatically be offered the opportunity to still receive assistance and support with their college application process, through our Ambassador Program.
