“Our investment in SMART reflects how profoundly we think the thoughtful design and delivery of this program is a win-win situation all around. SMART enriches doctoral scholars as professionals, advances graduate research, and is an inspiration for undergraduates to pursue advanced studies.”
Rosemary Joyce, Professor of Anthropology
SMART projects for undergraduates will be posted on March 19, and undergraduate applications will be due by April 7.
What is SMART?
Student Mentoring and Research Teams (SMART) is a program that enables doctoral students to create mentored research opportunities for undergraduate students at UC Berkeley. The program provides summer funding for both graduate and undergraduate participants and opportunities to share research results on campus and at national conferences.

Why Support SMART?
Gifts to the SMART program are more than matched by University contributions. Each team’s sponsorship provides stipends of up to $5,000 to graduate mentors and $3,500 to undergraduate mentees. Up to $1,000 may also be made available to SMART mentors for travel or research expenses that cannot be covered elsewhere.
