How to Fund Your Graduate Education

Most Ph.D. students at UCI are supported by a combination of fellowships, teaching assistantships, research assistantships and faculty training grants. Because student funding is coordinated at the departmental level, be sure to ask your department about your options.

Master’s students are typically self-supported but may be eligible for these resources. Check with the individual department/program for Master’s degree funding opportunities.

The Graduate Division also offers an array of financial support resources, such as fellowship competitions open to incoming and current UCI students, and funding workshops and writing tutors available through the Graduate Resource Center.
