The Matsui Center Washington Fellowship provides financial support and other assistance for Cal students participating in the UC Berkeley Washington Program (UCDC). The fellowship carries a $1,000 stipend to help defray the costs of spending a semester in Washington. 

The fellowship program is open only to students already admitted to UCDC. Students should apply to UCDC and then will receive further information about the Matsui Fellowship selection process. 

Apply to the Washington Fellowship

Matsui Fellows are selected from students currently enrolled in the UC Berkeley Washington (UCDC) Program. Visit the UCDC website for more details and application information. The application window for the Fall 2022 UCDC program is now closed. Please check back in the fall for Spring 2023 application information.
