Birgeneau Perelman Fund for Undocumented Graduate Students

Apply for the Birgeneau Perelman Fund for Undocumented Students

The Office for Graduate Diversity and Berkeley Graduate Division are pleased to announce stipends for undocumented graduate students. This financial award is intended to fill a critical gap in graduate and professional student support. Priority for funding will be given based on need and to those who are not eligible for other sources of support.

Applications will be reviewed and awarded on a rolling basis.


Eligible graduate students, including professional school students, are invited to apply for the UC Berkeley Stipend.  Awards will vary based on need. Selected applicants will be required to either mentor an undergraduate student and/or engage with the Office of Graduate Diversity.


Questions about the Graduate Diversity Award may be directed to Jessica at or by calling (510) 643-6010.
