The Department offers a number of fellowships to incoming students. Fellowship packages normally grant four or five years of funding (with various combinations of fellowships and teaching assistantships). To maintain their support packages from year to year, students must show satisfactory progress in the graduate program.
We highly recommend that all applicants apply for other forms of financial assistance:
In addition to departmental funding, we strongly encourage students to apply for external awards such as Fulbright, Ford, etc. More information on external fellowships can be found on the Graduate Division website: http://www.gdnet.ucla.edu/asis/stusup/index.html.
