Announcing the Greater Good Science Center (GGSC) at UC Berkeley’s 2023-2024 research fellowship program, which supports research by undergraduate and graduate students whose work relates to our mission: investigating the roles that social connection, kindness, and community play in the happy, meaningful lives of individuals and society. The fellowships are open to UC Berkeley undergraduate (up to $5,000) and graduate students (up to $10,000) who are enrolled until at least May 2024.
Former fellows have come from departments of psychology, integrative biology, anthropology, American studies, sociology, neuroscience, urban studies, and other departments; the school of public health, education, social welfare, and Haas business; and the UC Berkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program. They have gone on to secure top research and teaching positions at universities nationwide, providing a significant boost to the science of a meaningful life, including topics like awe, compassion, resilience, altruism, and happiness.
