Costs and Financial Aid

In conjunction with the regular financial aid programs of the university, the Haas School of Business does its best to provide financial assistance to eligible PhD students. This usually takes the form of a financial aid package over five years of study at Berkeley and includes stipends, grants, fellowships, and other awards, plus tuition and fees. All financial aid is based on the satisfactory academic progress of the student. Students are automatically considered for departmental aid when they submit their application for admission and are notified about their award when they are accepted into the program.

Funding for the school’s financial awards may come from among the following sources:

  • Norma W. and Alvin B. Chan Fellowship
  • Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship
  • Joe Shoong Foundation Fellowship
  • Orel Chrisman Crawford Fellowships
  • Schwabacher Fellowships
  • Claudius N. and James N. White Fellowships.

Students may also apply for outside fellowships, typically for their dissertation year.
