Alpha of California is pleased to announce that it will grant a limited number of graduate fellowships in 2018. These fellowships will be awarded to members of Phi Beta Kappa who are doctoral students at UC Berkeley during the 2018–19 academic year. Note: The Graduate Division can disburse funds only to currently enrolled students.
Preference will be given to students who have nearly completed their dissertations and who have exhausted other forms of financial support, although all members of Phi Beta Kappa are eligible for these fellowships.
Additional grants will be awarded by the Northern California Association of Phi Beta Kappa through the same application process. Last year a total of seven fellowships in the amount of $7,500 each were awarded to Berkeley doctoral candidates.
The deadline to submit an application online is Tuesday, January 30, 2018. Applicants must express assurance of attending the initiation ceremony on Thursday, May 3, 2018, at 5:00 pm. Attendance is mandatory for fellowship recipients unless they are out of the country. The Northern California Association supports our program and we share a combined application process.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. Awards will be announced in mid-April of 2018.
