Are scholarships available?

Most admitted students will be nominated for one of the University of California’s multi-year fellowships. These fellowships allow for two years of fee remissions and stipends supplied by the University, which is matched for two years of support from the History of Art department in the form of Graduate Student Instructor appointments or fellowships. Students who advance through the program in a timely manner will also earn the University’s Dissertation Completion Fellowship, which provides a stipend and fee remission for an additional year to be used while finishing the PhD dissertation.

Our students have been very successful in obtaining outside funding for their projects.
