UC Berkeley has received $15 million in direct-to-student funding through the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, $4 million of which will be awarded to eligible graduate students. To be considered for this funding, graduate students should file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Equivalent funding is available through the California Dream Act Application (CADAA). The deadline to file a FAFSA or a CADAA for funding consideration is Monday, April 19. There is no degree program restriction, so students in doctoral, master’s, professional, and online degree programs are eligible (but not guaranteed) to receive funds. Other assistance funds are also available through the Basic Needs Holistic Fund. Read more about these resources in Monday’s CALmessage to graduate students (UC Berkeley login required).
