Graduate Equity Fellowship Program
The Graduate Equity Fellowship program provides support for economically disadvantaged graduate students, especially from groups who are underrepresented within their respective disciplines. Only legal residents of the State of California who can demonstrate significant financial need of $1,000, as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form (FAFSA) are eligible. Recipients must be classified or conditionally classified graduate students, maintain a 3.00 GPA, and must be enrolled for a minimum of six units of graduate coursework each semester they hold the fellowship.
Fellowships range from $500 to $2,000 for an academic year depending on the demonstrated need. Students may receive awards for a maximum of two academic years, but they must apply each year. Postbaccalaureate students are ineligible.
Interested students should complete an application, obtained in the Graduate Division office (SSE 1410), and a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, obtained in the Financial Aid office. You can also click on this link to download the PDF application.
Complete applications are due September 16, 2016.

Both programs provide professional devlopment experiences through either international research or applied, mission-related research with federal agencies.
