Funding your Education at IR/PS
We provide merit-based fellowships to approximately 25% of our MPIA students. About 30% of our students work in some

way on campus. Students serve as teaching assistants, readers, research assistants, and school interns across the UC San Diego campus. Many of these positions come with some form of tuition remission. Additionally, non-resident U.S. citizens and permanent residents may apply for California residency the summer before the second year of study in the MPIA program. If residency is granted, non-resident tuition is eliminated.
California Resident Tuition Fellowship for Non-residents

All U.S. citizens and permanent residents who apply with a complete application to the MPIA program by the January 15 deadline and meet the fellowship prerequisites will be offered a California Resident Fellowship. The Fellowship is equivalent to the cost of non-resident tuition during the first year of study in the MPIA program. Eligible students will need to apply for California State residency for tuition purposes for their second year of study. California residency will reduce second-year tuition costs by over $12,000.

USMEX Fellowship
This fellowship, administered by IR/PS and its Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies (USMEX), is designed to support MPIA students committed to deepening the relationship between students, faculty, research scholars and the broader UC San Diego community on issues related to Mexico and U.S.-Mexico relations. The Fellow will receive two years of full tuition and fees, including health insurance, toward completion of a master’s degree at IR/PS. In addition, the Fellow will be considered for a living stipend awarded annually as part of the admissions committee review. View the fellowship prerequisites.
