General information

Financial Aid

UC Davis offers various types of graduate student support. Both need-based and merit-based funds are available. Eligibility criteria may vary and graduate student academic employment, such as teaching or research assistantships, are administered by individual departments.

Financial Assistance including loans, grants, and workstudy employment is administered by the Financial Aid Office on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Students must file a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to determine eligibility. Applications are available after December 1 and should be filed by early March.
