Funding

In conjunction with the regular financial aid programs of the university, the Haas School of Business does its best to provide financial assistance to deserving PhD students. This usually takes the form of a financial aid package over four 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.
