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. Please note, selected awardees may be required to mentor an undergraduate student, and returning applicants may reapply for funds once per academic year.


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