A fellowship provides financial support to graduate students to pursue graduate studies without associated teaching or research responsibilities (as they are in a teaching or research assistantship). Fellowships are generally merit-based internal or external awards to support a student in a full-time course of study. We offer fellowship workshops, boot camps, consultation, and review sessions to help you in your pursuit of a fellowship.
The Graduate School funds a significant number of entering doctoral students with fellowships awarded through their graduate field. Explore the list below to learn more.
You can find additional fellowship opportunities through UCLA and Unigo. The Graduate School at the University of California, Los Angeles maintains one of the most extensive and up-to-date university databases on graduate school funding opportunities (GRAPES). Unigo is another organization that provides students with access to well-organized details on thousands of funding opportunities for college and graduate studies. You can create a profile with Unigo that will help facilitate your search for scholarships for which you might be eligible to apply, or you can forgo creating a profile and explore information on funding focused on specific areas of study, interests, and/or identity groups
