Fellowships are awards made directly to graduate students to support advancement in their academic programs, research and careers. Fellowships may be funded by the University of California or an external agency, foundation or institution. Most fellowships are awarded primarily based on the merits of the student and the proposed scholarly activity, although other factors will often play roles.
Graduate Programs may have fellowships for current graduate students for stipends, conference travel, and student fees. Please consult with your graduate program regarding additional fellowship opportunities and the application process.
