Putting the pieces together

On these pages, you’ll find information to help you navigate the options for financial support available during your graduate study at UC Berkeley. Financial support varies widely, from academic student employment or large competitive fellowships that include payment of tuition, to targeted grants that assist with foreign language study, dissertation research, and conference travel, to emergency grants and awards designed to help students manage student loan debt. 

Whether you’re looking to learn more about becoming a graduate student researcher or an academic student employee (Graduate Student Instructor, Reader or Tutor), locate fellowships or grants, or identify resources as a grad student parent, we hope this information can help put the graduate funding puzzle together.
