Alpha of California is pleased to announce that it will grant a limited number of graduate fellowships in 2019. These fellowships will be awarded to members of Phi Beta Kappa who are doctoral students at UC Berkeley during the 2018–19 academic year.

Preference will be given to students who are in the final stages of writing a dissertation 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. Note: The Graduate Division can disburse funds only to currently enrolled students.

The deadline to submit an application online is January 29, 2019. Applicants must express assurance of attending the initiation ceremony at 5 pm on Thursday, May 9, 2019. Attendance is mandatory for fellowship recipients unless they are out of the country. The Northern California Association supports the program and the combined application process.

Please contact [email protected] with questions. Awards will be announced in mid-April.
