Welcome to the 2005–06 edition of the Annual Report. We are delighted
to share with you the achievements of the last year and to celebrate
the great success of our students and alumni. ✠ This year we are tell-
ing the story of the Incentive Awards Program by really focusing on the
stories of our current 220 Scholars and 169 Alumni. Their successes are
our Program successes, and they are the greatest proof of the value of
the investments made by so many donors and Program supporters. ✠
To start off the story, we focus on our Alumni, who are changing the world
in a myriad of ways. ✠ We hope that you enjoy reading about them and the
current Scholars in the pages ahead.

     2 Recipients on temporary leave are in “good academic standing,” and have withdrawn for one semester or more to pursue other educational
       opportunities or to deal with family or personal issues. Their IAP scholarships are held as long as UC Berkeley maintains their status as being
       in “good academic standing”; they fulfill their IAP responsibilities, which include developing a “plan of action” for their time away; and they
       check in twice a year with an IAP staff member.
     3 Recipients dismissed by UC Berkeley for not maintaining “good academic standing” continue to be counseled by the IAP office, which works
       with dismissed students in developing academic plans that will allow them to return to the University. If re-admitted, their scholarships would
       be reinstated.

at no time is this phenomenon more evident than at the progr am’s
annual june awards dinner, the one time each year when the scholars and
representatives of all these communities come together in an emotional
celebration of hope. it is at this event that the incoming scholars, who
have worked so hard to overcome such extreme adversity, are recognized
for their achievements and are launched toward their individual destinies
by the applause of their peers, the scholars who came before them, and
those supporters who are making their journeys possible.                                                     4

IN THE YEARS TO COME , it is more important than ever that UC Berkeley has the
resources it needs to be inclusive and keep its gates open to a socio-economically
diverse community of young people for whom our campus will provide the gateway
to success.

In closing, we pledge that as the Incentive Awards Program grows, it will grow with
integrity. Quality of service, and not just quantity of students, is a goal to which we
are truly committed. So as we plan for the future, we remember those philosophies
that made the Program strong in its earliest years.

                     Funding is now being sought to continue expanding the
                     Incentive Awards Program, to support the new initiatives that
                     will allow us to meet our continually refined program goals,
                     to support the needs of a growing student community, and to
                     expand our alliances with community partners.

                     The Incentive Awards Program staff and all its participants
                     thank the Program’s many donors and friends for their con-
                     tinuing investments of time and money that have allowed
                     us to come this far. We strive to continue being worthy of
                     such support this coming year, and in the years to follow.
