 Be resourceful. Get funded. Become a fellow. 

Fellowships are one of the best ways to fund your graduate education. Fellowships can free you from employment obligations, cover a portion of tuition, and provide funds for international travel. Search here for more information about some of the fellowship opportunities available to UC San Diego graduate students. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about fellowships, please contact

Please be aware that if your fellowship opportunity requires that you list your mentor as the principal investigator on the project, you may need to work with the Office of Contract & Grant Administration

STAY TUNED - A new tool for fellowship searching and exploration will be launching very soon!
