UCI's commitment to diversity is exemplified by providing sources of funding for students from diverse backgrounds. The diversity fellowships place an emphasis on supporting students who can add diversity to our graduate programs and the academy. By eliminating the need for employment during the fellowship year, this funding allows more time to focus on research and academics.
Each year, a number of diversity fellowships are awarded to entering and continuing UC Irvine graduate students on a competitive basis. These prestigeous, comprehensive funding packages offer our diverse student population the opportunity to acquire and develop advanced research skills through faculty mentoring relationships. To learn more about these fellowships, please visit the Diversity Fellowship page in the Funding section of our website.
