New Scholarship Program for Women in STEM Fields at Berkeley

Sandra and Douglas Bergeron

Since 2006 the Bergeron Scholars program at Georgia State University has provided financial aid and mentoring opportunities for five women each year pursuing careers in STEM fields. In addition to scholarships, the women are paired with executive-level mentors in their chosen fields.

Now the Bergeron Scholars program has been extended to the University of California at Berkeley. Five women at Berkeley each year will receive scholarships and be paired with mentors. The women will also have access to internship opportunities, academic assistance, and career development tools.

The program is funded by a $1.5 million grant from Sandra and Douglass Bergeron. Douglass Bergeron is CEO of VeriFone Systems. Sandra Bergeron is chair of TraceSecurity and a venture partner with Trident Capital.
