Pre-Matriculate Scholarship Opportunities

 

Fellowships and Scholarships you can apply for as you apply to graduate school at UCR:

 

Eugene Cota-Robles Award (ECRA) - ECRA recipients must be academically meritorious and from a cultural, linguistic, geographic, and/or socioeconomic background under-represented in graduate education. The intent is to provide access to higher education for students who might otherwise find it difficult or impossible to successfully pursue graduate study. The applicant must be a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S.; only Ph.D. applicants are eligible. Examples of recent award winners include those based on socioeconomic need, educational challenges (such as limited access to educational resources), ethnic background, and/or first generation to achieve a college degree. To be eligible for this award, it is essential the applicant complete and submit the “Supplementary Fellowship Information” form (you will see this as an optional form to fill out towards the end of your web-based application).

Graduate Diversity Award (GDA) - These funds are provided to increase the diversity of our graduate student population. Only Ph.D. applicants are eligible. Eligibility will be determined by evaluating an applicant’s academic record, his or her potential, background, and life experiences. Examples of recent award winners include those based on socioeconomic need, educational challenges (such as limited access to educational resources), ethnic background, and/or first generation to achieve a college degree. To be eligible for this award, it is essential the applicant complete and submit the “Supplementary Fellowship Information” form (you will see this as an optional form to fill out towards the end of your web-based application).

Endowed Department Scholarships - These scholarships do not supply a large amount of funding (typically a $1,000-$4,000 augmentation) but can be used to augment a funding package. If you think you might qualify for one of these, please include relevant information in your application and mention the award. 

Harry H. Shorey Endowed Scholarship - Dr. Harry H. Shorey was a Professor of Entomology at UCR whose expertise included pheromone studies in entomology. Selection criteria are prioritized in the following order: pheromone-related research is given the highest priority, an applicant with the greatest financial need, overcoming dyslexia, and then meritorious academic record.

 Francis A. and Jane Davies Gunther Endowed Scholarship Fund - Dr. Francis Gunther was a Distinguished Professor of Entomology at UCR whose research focused on the development of novel chemical insecticides for the control of insect pests. A preference is given to students pursuing research on pesticide chemistry in entomology with demonstrated financial need.  

 Lauren D. and Mildred D. Anderson Endowed Graduate Assistantship in Immature Insects - Dr. Lauren D. Anderson was a member of the original faculty in Entomology at UCR who retired 1976.  Professor and Mrs. Anderson established this endowment as a permanent reminder of the importance of continuing research on immature insects. An annual stipend may be awarded to a graduate student doing research in the area of immature insects (e.g., systematics, morphology, life history). A multi-year award to a particular student is permitted. 

 Ian and Helen Moore Endowment Fund for Marine and Aquatic Entomology - Ian Moore was a Staff Research Associate in the Department of Entomology at UCR. Eligible students include those whose research will focus on furthering the knowledge of arthropods (except Crustacea) wholly or partially associated with the marine environment or of aquatic entomology with a preference for studies focusing on the freshwater-marine interface.  Studies may have a broad scope within the suitable habitat types, including the biology, ecology or systematics of representative arthropods.
