Berkeley Model United Nations is committed to providing opportunities to students from socioeconomically unprivileged backgrounds. One of the ways we reach out to students who are discouraged from coming to our conference due to financial reasons is our Alumni Scholarship Program. Established in honor of countless BMUN alumni who have made special contributions to the conference and the delegates, BMUN Alumni Scholarship is a step forward in making MUN a realistic opportunity for every high
school student.


  1. Download the BMUN Alumni Scholarship application as a PDF or as a Word Doc from the BMUN website and fill out the application form. You may write the answers to short answer questions and the essay on a separate sheet of paper and attach it to the application.
  2. Have the School Advisor Recommendation form filled out by your MUN class/club advisor. If you do not have a MUN class/club advisor, please ask a faculty member that is best able to fill out the form.
  3. Mail the completed application form, your essay, and Advisor Recommendation Form to the following address by February 12008:
