Financial aid and fees
Tuition and fees
Tuition and fees for the Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Graduate Degree Program are set by University of California Board of Regents and can change without notice. Tuition is based on residency as well as degree type (i.e. academic or professional). Please visit http://budget.ucdavis.edu/studentfees for more information.
Financial aid for graduate study at UC Davis 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 aid. All Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership students are encouraged to seek a variety of forms of financial support. For more information, visit UC Davis Health System Financial Aid Office.
UC Davis internal fellowships
There are a variety of fellowships available for students from different backgrounds, research areas and years of graduate study. These fellowships are competitive funds for graduate students across the entire UC Davis campus. Please check if you qualify for any of the current funding opportunities. For more information visit the Office of Graduate Studies, Internal Fellowship website.
M.S. nurse practitioner and M.H.S. physician assistant students
Information about various forms of financial aid — grants, scholarships, fellowships, loan programs and short-term loans — are available for clinical education through UC Davis Health System Financial Aid Office. Both federal and state resources provide a range of flexible repayment options, including, but not limited to, income-based and income-contingent repayment plans, as well as loan-forgiveness benefits. Other forms of assistance, such as short-term loans, are also available, at no interest, to enrolled students.
In addition to UC Davis assistance, students are encouraged to seek private scholarship information. There are several online searchable scholarship databases. One example is collegeboard.com.
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, so they have 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 enrolled M.S. leadership student in the 2014-15 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 enrolled doctoral student in the 2014-15 cohort receives $45,000 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 doctoral students concentrate on their studies.
Financial packages are finalized with each offer of admission.
