Graduate Fellowships

Valentino Gantz, winner of the first annual Biology Founding Faculty Award for Graduate Excellence.

Your gift to fund graduate fellowships is a game-changing investment that will attract the brightest graduate students to UC San Diego and the region. These talented individuals fuel regional research, boost the economy and help solve pressing global challenges.

Yet, UC San Diego is challenged to compete for the top candidates when peer institutions can offer more generous financial packages. Your investment in fellowships will help us attract the best to UC San Diego and our region, which will give returns now and for generations to come.

Founding Faculty Prize

Faculty, alumni and friends can also make an impact for outstanding graduate students with a gift to the Biology Founding Faculty Prize. Gifts can be made in honor of a teacher or mentor that made an impact in your life.
