How Graduate Students Fuel Research Excellence!

Graduate students are at the heart of Berkeley’s excellence

Graduate students drive original research, the discovery of new knowledge, and inspire and mentor our undergraduates. Fellowships attract the very best and brightest students — fueling dynamic partnerships between faculty and students that are fundamental to innovative teaching and research.

Faculty at Berkeley, many whom are world-renowned in their fields, often cite the high caliber of our graduate students as the top factor contributing to their work satisfaction. Building greater support for graduate fellowships by significantly increasing funding across all disciplines is one of Berkeley’s highest philanthropic priorities. Gifts to the Graduate Fellowship & Support Fund are critical to Berkeley’s legacy, and our future.
