The Political Science department offers support to many of its graduate students through a combination of department fellowships, university multiyear fellowships, and teaching and research assistantships. While funding packages vary by student, incoming students are generally awarded five years of funding support consisting of fees and non-resident tuition, and student health insurance. All funding packages are contingent on meeting minimum academic and residency requirements throughout the tenure of support.

United States citizens and Permanent Residents are required to achieve California residency by the end of their first year in California to receive continued fee support.
