Fellowships for New Students

Other Pages In UCSB Fellowships

Incoming students indicate on the application for admission whether or not they are interested in being considered for fellowship support.

All candidates are nominated directly by the academic department. Multi-disciplinary faculty committees select award recipients. The award committees look at the departmental ranking of each nominated candidate, GPA, GRE scores, letters of recommendation, and each candidate’s statement of purpose. All award selection processes are very competitive.

To be eligible for fellowship awards, students must have filed their application for admission, all supporting documents, and the FAFSA by January 15 or the stated deadline for their department, if earlier.
