Fellowship Experiences

UC San Diego graduate students make important contributions to research and teaching while enrolled and many students apply for and are awarded competitive fellowships from outside organizations in recognition of their excellence. We encourage you to read their stories - we hope they will inspire you to apply for fellowships and we encourage you to reach out to the Graduate Division for support during the application process!
