The Graduate Fellowships Office provides multi-year University Graduate Fellowships, Diversity Fellowships, and Departmental Block Grant Fellowships. In addition, this office coordinates many extramural fellowships. It also serves as a resource center for students seeking information on fellowships funded by the University and outside sources. There are a limited number of fellowships available. The SPH maintains additional information about fellowships and financial aid for public health students on its website, sph.berkeley.edu.
Financial Aid & Scholarship information for prospective Berkeley students can be found at at financialaid.berkeley.edu. Student loan and work-study packages are offered to admitted students by the campus Financial Aid Office only after they have submitted their Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) to attend Berkeley.
Eligible graduate students may wish to seek an appointment as a Graduate Student Instructor (GSI) or Graduate Student Research (GSR). GSI and GSR positions are highly sought after across campus and availability varies year to year in most departments. The MCH program has a limited number of GSI and GSR positions available each year and priority in hiring is given to MCH students. MCH students seeking any type of student employment are able to work with the MCH Assistant Director to find positions suited to their skills and interests.
