Funding Your Graduate Studies

Graduates at spring commencement ceremony

The burden of financing shouldn’t get in the way of obtaining an excellent graduate education. 

UC Merced is very proud to provide extensive financial support for graduate education towards doctoral degrees. In addition to academic year funding, the large majority of our Ph.D. students also receive summer support that can be used for research, educational, and living costs during the summer. Further, many of our programs provide support for graduate student travel to conferences, summer schools, and other professional meetings. While doctoral support is prioritized, the same funding is also available to master's students in some cases.
