Continuing Student Internal Fellowship Competition

Each fall, Graduate Studies conducts an Internal Fellowship competition for continuing academic graduate students. A "continuing student" is a student who has already been officially admitted to UC Davis, is registered and enrolled in classes during the current academic year, and will be registered and enrolled during the academic year in which the funding will be paid. Descriptions of the fellowships offered during this competition can be found on our internal fellowships page.
