UC San Diego is one of three institutions selected by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation for a partnership to support underrepresented graduate students in STEM fields. The three-year, multi-million dollar initiative is an expansion of the Sloan Foundation’s Minority Ph.D. Program. As part of the partnership, UC San Diego will establish a University Center of Exemplary Mentoring that will provide scholarships to minority doctoral students as well as coordinate faculty and peer mentoring, research opportunities, workshops and other programs to help students succeed.
The Graduate Division is the central resource for all matters related to graduate education at UC San Diego. Our team is there at every step in a graduate student’s career, helping students navigate their path from admission to graduation and beyond. Working behind-the-scenes and in collaboration with faculty, staff and students, the Graduate Division guides today’s scholars on their upward trajectory to becoming tomorrow’s leaders.
