Most multi-year fellowships are awarded at the time of acceptance to Berkeley. There are, however, additional fellowships for students further in their graduate study, and for graduate students whose backgrounds and educational interests enhance the level of diversity within the Graduate community. See the Graduate Student Services Advisor or Graduate Fellowships Office for more information.
Foreign students of ineligible immigration statuses can never be exempted from non-resident tuition. However, the tuition of nonresident graduate students who have been advanced to candidacy for the doctorate is reduced to zero for a maximum calendar period of three years calculated from the semester subsequent to the students’ advancement, whether registered or not.
The department works with all its students to obtain continuous support through a combination of resources.
For more information on fellowships, contact Hannah Fischer at email@example.com or visit the Graduate Division Fellowship website. In recent years students have been successful in obtaining such grants as the Javits, Kress, Fulbright, Social Science Research Council, American Association of University Women, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, Getty Predoctoral, National Gallery/CASVA, Fulbright and many others.
