Student Funding

Welcome to the UCSF School of Nursing Office of Student Affairs Student Funding Department!

We are located in the School of Nursing, Student Affairs Office, Room N319X. Part of our mission is to assist students with the scholarships/grants to support their graduate education! Financial assistance to nursing students is available in the form of scholarships, grants, traineeships, Academic Appointments, Nursing Faculty Loan Programs, and Nursing Loan Repayment programs to eligible U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Several funding programs require departmental and/or faculty nominations thus it is strongly encouraged that students maintain contact with their academic programs and advisers.

All students at the School of Nursing are encouraged to seek a variety of forms of financial support and it is essential for students to apply as early as possible. Beginning academic year 2016-17 the School of Nursing Student Funding Office will use a single Scholarship Supplemental Application for all of the Funds that we award through our office. If you are interested in applying for Scholarships, Traineeships, and Nursing Faculty Loan Program, you will find details here on how to apply for various sources. Good Luck!

Incoming PhD students receive financial support to cover full tuition and fees for years 1 to 3. Students must be enrolled as a full time student and must main a GPA of 3.0 or higher to receive support. For years 4 – 5 of funding support funds will be contingent upon the availability of receipt of student scholarship and grant funding. At this time we are not able to guarantee funding. We encourage PhD students to stay engaged with their faculty advisors, Graduate Division Office and the student funding department to learn about funding opportunities available to them.

Graduate Division also offers a variety of funding opportunities for eligible PhD students, including merit fellowships, childcare grants, and travel awards. Extramural fellowships and grants are also available and details are listed here. The Graduate Division has offices in two locations: on Parnassus in Millberry Union, Room 200 West (MU200W) and at Mission Bay in the William J. Rutter Center, Suite 310 (CC310).
