Student Funding

Graduate education is a financial investment and we recognize that students may need support. The UCSF School of Nursing’s Student Funding Office is here to help.

We offer scholarships, grants, traineeships, academic appointments, nursing faculty loans, and a loan repayment program to eligible U.S. citizens and permanent residents. To explore the range of opportunities available, visit the “Opportunities” and “Scholarships” tabs below.

A special note for doctoral students: In-state tuition and fees are fully covered for our PhD students for the first three years. Students must be enrolled full time and maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher to receive support. For their fourth and fifth years, funding support is contingent on the availability of scholarship and grant funding. PhD students should stay engaged with their faculty advisors, the Student Funding Office and the Graduate Division to learn about available funding opportunities.

Students are encouraged to seek a variety of financial support. In addition to the School of Nursing’s Student Funding Office, other UCSF offices that offer support include:
