Financial aid and fees
The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and UC Davis are committed to overcoming barriers to graduate education—such as significant tuition costs and loss of income—to ensure the best and brightest students who share the vision to transform health care through nursing education and research are prepared as future leaders in health care, health policy, education and research.
Each student admitted to the master's and doctoral degree programs at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing receives generous financial support for tuition/fees and additional expenses. This generous financial support for graduate nursing students is made possible by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s $100 million commitment to the school and additional scholarship sources.
Master's degree students receive a $40,000 scholarship over two years to go toward tuition and fees. Out-of-state and international packages are examined and approved on an individual basis.
Doctoral degree students receive $50,000 per academic year for four years. This support fully covers fees and tuition with the remainder intended as a stipend to help offset loss of income while concentrating on doctoral studies.
Financial packages are finalized with each offer of admission.

Financial aid for graduate study at UC Davis (in addition to that provided by the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing) is available in several forms. There are different procedures for applying for each type of financial assistance. It is essential students to apply as early as possible for financial support.
