Financial Assistance for Graduate School

Whether you’re a new or continuing graduate student, you have questions about financial aid. We have the answers, along with a range of resources to help you pay for your UCI education.

Just what kind of financial assistance is available to graduate students?

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 additional resources, as well. Check with your individual department or 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.

We encourage you to explore the resources available through the Graduate Division, which offers comprehensive information about funding opportunities and resources, including assistantships and fellowships.
