  • Financial aid — economics
    not available for international students When offered financial aid usually consists of a teaching assistantship or a teaching assistantship plus some partial funding toward nonresident tuition Sometimes TA and nonresident tuition fellowship offers are multi year offers How many continuing students get aid How many continuing graduate students receive financial aid each year We can t predict in advance whether or not anyone is likely to receive future aid However most grad students in the program have plenty of TA or RA experience by the time they finish the program We do not provide information about past aid offers to continuing students because that would not provide an accurate indicator for future financial aid Second chance for tuition fellowship If a newly admitted grad student does not receive a nonresident tuition fellowship at first is there any chance one might be available later before fall quarter begins After financial aid decisions have been made the department informs new grad students by email about whether or not they will receive an aid offer If a student receives an email saying the department is unable to offer financial aid that is really the case and the situation is not likely to change later New students who are not offered a nonresident tuition fellowship before arrival at UC Davis are not likely to receive one later during the first year either Usually if further funding for nonresident tuition fellowships becomes available later in the year it would be offered instead to grad students who entered the program previous years Second chance for TA or financial aid If a newly admitted graduate Economics student does not receive a TA or financial aid offer at first is there any chance one might be available later New graduate students can apply for TAships in other departments on campus such as Mathematics Statistics or Agricultural and Resource Economics students need to inquire at the other departments about TA application procedures deadlines and other details These positions are unlikely to be obtained as early as April 15 and waiting to inquire about them until summer or closer to the beginning of the fall quarter may be preferable In the past new students sometimes have been able to get hired in positions like this after arrival here If another department requires letters of recommendation along with a TA application students can ask Economics Graduate Program advisor Marilyn Dexter to send the other department copies of the recommendation letters that were submitted earlier with the admission application New nonresident students who are not offered a nonresident tuition fellowship before arrival at UC Davis are not likely to receive one later during the first year either But for the second or later years nonresident tuition fellowships are offered annually to international students on a competitive basis Future financial aid prospects What about financial aid for future years after the first year in the graduate program Continuing graduate students can apply for financial aid each year in advance for the following year
