The Rady School of Management seeks to provide scholarships to all admitted Ph.D. students over four years of study. Students are offered a combination of scholarships (teaching assistantships, research assistantships and fellowships) based on their topic and year of study. RA and TA appointments are typically for half-time service (20 hours per week), require registration as a full-time student and are contingent upon continuing satisfactory academic progress and employment performance. Students are automatically considered for departmental aid when they submit their application for admission and are notified of their award when they are accepted into the program.
In addition, UC San Diego’s Financial Aid Office offers various forms of traditional financial aid, including both need-based grants and educational loans. Specific information on educational loans, including federally subsidized Stafford loans, is available at their website.
All doctoral students who are either U.S. citizens or permanent residents are encouraged to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year to access state and federal grants and loans. FAFSA applications for the 2012-13 school year will be available January 1. The FAFSA must be filed by March 2 and the student’s financial aid file must be complete by May 1 to be considered for grant funding.
