The UC Berkeley Achievement and Spot Award Program includes two types of awards:

  1. Achievement Awards ($1000): For sustained, superior performance above and beyond normal performance expectations. May be awarded to an individual or team.
  2. Spot Awards ($400): For significant contributions for a specific project or task, or group of projects or tasks, above and beyond normal performance expectations. May be awarded to an individual or team.

In addition, departments can recognize specific contributions to the departmental mission or strategic plan via Non-Cash Awards (non-cash, up to $75 in value).
