Fellowship and Support

Financial support is available for our Environmental Science and Engineering (ESE) students for their first two years. Exceptional first year students may receive additional fellowships or stipends toward educational and living expenses and second year students may apply for fellowships for continuing graduate students at UCLA

After year two when coursework and the Problems Course is complete, ESE students begin their residency. Our ESE students find that residencies are usually well-paid positions and competitive with the current job market for entering environmental science professionals. Educational and living expenses are covered through the residency salary, and a very high percentage of residencies lead to permanent positions.

Please visit the UCLA Financial Aid website for more funding options for graduate students.
