All UC Berkeley graduate students in good standing who will be formally advanced to candidacy (will have satisfied all requirements for the Ph.D except the dissertation) by the Fall of the fellowship term may apply.  Funds will not be available until the student has advanced to candidacy. Students must be registered with Graduate Division for their award term. Students are eligible for support regardless of previous fellowships from other sources.  A total of no more than two years of support will be provided to a recipient of this fellowship; applications for the second year of support will be considered along with other applications for that year.

While you are welcome to apply for all three graduate fellowships (Bendix, Sharlin, Simpson), the total award amount cannot exceed $15,000.

Details will be announced soon.
