International Fellowships

International Fellowships are extramural fellowships that provide support for the student to conduct research outside of the United States.

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 & Postdoctoral Scholars Resource Center.

Eligibility criteria for recipients of fellowships:
  1. Be enrolled full-time (minimum 12 quarter units).
  2. Earn a letter grade of B, S or above in all courses completed during each of the three
    most recent quarters of enrollment.
  3. Earn no more than two Incomplete (I) grades during each of the three most recent
    quarters of enrollment.
  4. Earn a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher during each of the three most recent quarters of
    enrollment.
  5. Make satisfactory academic progress toward the degree objective.

UCI Graduate Division will not discriminate on the basis of protected categories.
