In light of recent protests against police violence directed at Black communities and the persistence of systemic racism, the Graduate Division and multiple deans at UC Santa Barbara have launched an initiative designed to enhance the recruitment of graduate students committed to teaching, research and mentorship around racial justice.

The Racial Justice Fellowships will provide recipients $8,000 in summer funding for three years on top of a five-year package of full funding. Four fellowships, open to incoming students in any discipline, will be offered each year. All departments may nominate students for this opportunity.
