Continuing Student Fellowship Application 

Instructions for initiating an online application:

  1. Create an account in the online application.
  2. Review the terms and conditions.
  3. Start application.
  4. Students indicate their interest in being considered for nomination by checking all fellowships for which they are eligible and by explaining how they are eligible for each of the fellowships. Please see the listing of fellowships here.

Applications must include:

  • A statement of purpose and personal history statement.
  • Three (3) Letters of Recommendation
    •  Students register their recommenders via the online application and their recommenders must submit their letters DIRECTLY through the online system.
      • If the recommender requires that the student waive access to this letter, the Waiver of Access form has also been provided. 
      • The recommender registration section is separate from the essay section and can be completed before you are ready to submit a completed application. 
    • For continuing students, your graduate program cannot fully review your application until all three of your recommenders have submitted their letters.  Therefore, it is your responsibility to ensure that your three recommenders have electronically submitted their letters in a timely manner.  Do not wait until January 15, 2023 to register your three recommenders. 
    • To re-send notification emails to your recommenders, visit the recommendations page on your status portal, click "Edit", and then click "Send Reminder."

We recommend you register your three recommenders no later than December 20, 2022. Recommenders should submit their letters of recommendation on your behalf by January 18, 2023.

Application Deadline:

The application for 2023-24 UC Davis Internal Fellowships for Continuing Academic Graduate Students is due prior to 11:59:00 p.m. PST on January 15. 

Important Note: Our application system displays times and dates using Eastern Time (three hours later than Pacific Time), but UC Davis takes this into account. We consider applications on time as long as they are submitted by 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time.

Notification of Decision:

Official UC Davis internal fellowship notifications are sent directly to students via the e-mail address used in the online application and fellowship offers are accepted or declined using the Fellowship Decision Form in Slate. The first round of notifications will be e-mailed approximately 60 days after your fellowship deadline. Because fellowship offers are made in multiple rounds through October 1, notification about fellowship award may take a significant time to arrive.  However, we will notify applicants who have NOT been moved forward in the process so that they may make other financial plans.
