External Fellowships and Awards

Many Berkeley Social Welfare students have been successful at securing extramural funding through additional university, public, and privately sponsored fellowships.

Extramural awards are made from a variety of outside funding sources, including government agencies; professional and alumni organizations; private foundations; and corporations. We actively encourage all graduate students to apply for extramural funding, particularly doctoral students seeking dissertation support.

The process of identifying, researching and applying for external fellowships and awards can be lengthy and time-consuming - begin your search as early as possible! Following is a partial list of extramural funding resources, and awards previously given to Berkeley Social Welfare students.
