Graduate Student Fellowships

Graduate education at UC Merced endeavors to create a significant and lasting impact on its surrounding communities, the state, the nation and the world. From DNA sequencing to energy efficient infrastructure modeling and social movement mapping, UC Merced’s graduate students and faculty are busy paving the way for a healthier, cleaner, better tomorrow. We believe that the impossible becomes probable when the brightest and most creative individuals are provided with unparalleled instruction and a heightened social and environmental consciousness.
