The goal of the WCAHS Graduate Student Funding Program is to encourage graduate student work in agricultural health and safety. WCAHS funds UC Davis graduate student researchers on a quarterly basis and encourages faculty and students from all disciplines to apply.
During the academic year, students will be funded part-time (46–49% depending on graduate group) and will have their tuition and fees covered. During the summer, students will be funded up to full-time.
Current Funding Opportunity
