With our success has come growth, with over 220 Scholars being served today. As we’ve expanded we’ve had to rethink how we operate because staff members now serve larger ratios of students.

The trick is to balance change with continuity. What do we need to know? How do we get critical ANNUAL REPORT 2005 information about how we operate? IAP staff member Don Woodson is heading up the evaluation program and plans to seek input from all of IAP’s constituen- cies.

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. INCENTIVE AWARDS PROGRAM 5 section 2 Our Alumni the greatest proof of the success of the incentive awards program is reflect- ed in the success of its graduates. now, fifteen years after the program’s founding, we can begin to see the impact made by the investments of so many donors, volunteers, and staff. of course, what we also see are the results of hard work by the dedicated scholars themselves, young people who have managed to overcome difficult life circumstances and who continue to be positive role models as they graduate from berkeley and move into the larger world. the first eight incentive awards scholars graduated from uc berkeley in 1996; since then, 169 alumni are now moving into success- ful careers, with many others on the horizon poised to become leaders in their chosen professions. OUR FORMER INCENTIVE AWARDS SCHOL ARS are now attorneys, physicians, Because giving back has always been a hallmark of the IAP, many alumni are engineers, teachers, artists, non-proﬁt managers, accountants, bankers, community themselves playing active volunteer roles in the Program, with a number serving on organizers, to mention just some of the professions embraced by the group. the Selection Committee and others participating as mentors to current students. The oldest of our Scholars is now only 32 years old, but the goals and dreams so Alumni are now contributing to a fund that will soon sustain the cost of a many of us had for these talented students are already becoming reality.

These extraordinary young people have a wealth of experience and “I hope to continue the work that IAP promotes — ANNUAL REPORT 2005 insights to share, and one day, we know they will also have the ﬁnancial resources to provide many opportunities for others. creating leaders, who, despite early obstacles, have the capacity and power to improve their communities.” :: alexandra kent, english ’01 6 Alumni Success ··· Formal IAP Alumni Association Cal and Beyond to be Established UPDATES ON JUST A SMALL NUMBER OF OUR 169 IAP GRADS Several Incentive Awards Program alumni and °°° CRISTINA ALONSO , Political Science ’03, is currently working staff are working to establish an alumni association, as an executive assistant at Crystal Ventures. develop ideas about programmatic enrichments with current IAP Scholars, and create new oppor- °°° DANNY ANDREWS , Mass Communications ’02, will graduate tunities for alumni to interact in social, cultural, from UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law at the end of the and intellectual settings.

INCENTIVE AWARDS PROGRAM 59 section 7 A Gateway to Success closing thoughts from the program founder Maryellen Himell, Director of Development & Community Relations for the Division of Student Affairs, UC Berkeley ALL OF US at Berkeley are so proud that the Incentive Awards Program is now the largest privately funded scholarship and leadership development program in the entire University of California System. Building on this success and the success of other undergraduate scholarships, we are now planning a new campaign to signiﬁcantly increase scholarship support for many more Berkeley students. We are honored that the Program has lead the way as we seek to expand resources for the many thousands of undergraduates with great ﬁnancial need.

ANNUAL REPORT 2005 60 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. ✠ SCHOOL DISTRICTS ✠ PARTNER SCHOOLS ✠ SCHOL ARS AND FAMILIES Any new participating high school Any new participating high school New Scholars must know that as district must know that as it joins must know that its partnership they enroll at Berkeley, the same the Incentive Awards family it will with UC Berkeley and the Incen- attention and support provided to be as securely funded as was the tive Awards Program ofﬁce will be inaugural Scholars will be avail- original district, San Francisco, and as individualized and as personal able and accessible in the future. that its individual requirements will as were those ﬁrst partnerships. be considered and accommodated. INCENTIVE AWARDS PROGRAM 61 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.
