The benefits of participation in the Berkeley Prize are extraordinary, not only for those students who receive an award. Involvement in the program catalyzes all students to explore their design ethics, ideas for addressing social and environmental challenges, and hopes for the future. Throughout this process, students are encouraged to clearly articulate their professional goals and identify their personal paths forward. Not surprisingly, many have gone on to have profound impact on people and places, through their activism and practice.
