M.S. leadership and Ph.D. students

A primary goal of the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing is to address the growing need for nursing faculty. The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s $100 million commitment and additional scholarship sources provide financial support for tuition, fees and additional expenses to Master of Science — Leadership and Doctor of Philosophy students.

Scholarships enable the School of Nursing to recruit and recognize outstanding graduate students early in their careers, to allow time to make a significant difference through their work, research and scholarship. This support ensures the most qualified, diverse and driven prospective students receive opportunities to continue their education without the worry of significant tuition costs and loss of income.

Each M.S. leadership student admitted in the fall 2015 cohort  receives 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.

Each doctoral student admitted in the fall 2015 cohort receives annual funding to cover UC in-state tuition and fees, as well as a variable stipend to support professional development and dissertation expenses for each year for up to four years for a total of up to $120,000.

In years 1 and 2, each doctoral student receives $30,000 per academic year. The support agreement will vary for years 3 and 4 based on graduate student employment opportunities in the School of Nursing. Employment opportunities include both research and teaching assistant roles. Total funding per student for years 3 and 4 is approximately $14,000 for tuition and fees. Each student will be eligible for additional funding through service to the school of nursing up to approximately $16,000 per year, dependent upon employment service to the School of Nursing.

General financial aid resources

Information about various financial aid resources (grants, scholarships, fellowships, loan programs and short-term loans) available for clinical education is provided  through the UC Davis Health System Financial Aid Office. There are different procedures for applying for each type of financial assistance and they are not program-specific to the School of Nursing.

Other forms of assistance, such as short-term loans, are also available, at no interest, to enrolled students.
