Students admitted into the program receive five-year funding packages which cover tuition, stipend, and health insurance through a combination of fellowship, teaching assistantship, and research assistantship support. Once admitted, students may pursue further funding opportunities for research, conference travel, and language studies offered by Graduate Division, the School of Humanities’ Office of Graduate Studies and the Humanities Center, as well as other campus centers and programs. Funding opportunities offered through UC Irvine vary from year to year, but an overview and further information may be found here.

Students are also encouraged to apply for external fellowships for dissertation research, and a listing of possible external fellowship can be found here.
