The UC Graduate School is proud to offer the Provost Graduate Fellowship (PGF): grants for promising new PhD students whose presence diversifies our institution and the academy. Generously funded by the Office of the Provost, these awards signify the commitment of UC’s leadership to making graduate education mirror the demographics of American society. Increasing the share of underrepresented ethnic or racial minorities as recipients of doctoral degrees diversifies the Graduate School and our pipeline of future academic talent.
The Graduate School will offer three PGF awards per year to incoming PhD students, with each winner receiving three years of a full-tuition scholarship in addition to a yearly living stipend of $25,000. Annual renewal will depend on the student’s continued good academic standing and satisfactory progress toward degree completion. The fellowships will require no work commitments.
