Service to UC Berkeley graduate students is a primary ISEEES function, and through a combination of intra- and extramural funding, it offers a variety of graduate student assistance, including fellowships, graduate student training grants, and grants for research-related travel.
Graduate students specializing in Slavic, East European, or Eurasian fields may be eligible for a variety of other departmental and University fellowships, grants-in-aid, research assistantships, and teaching assistantships, as well as Title VI Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships, and fellowships designated for students within BPS. Individual fellowships and grants for graduate students focussing on Hungarian, Polish, or Balkan studies are also available. Students are advised to visit the Graduate Fellowship Office, 318 Sproul Hall.
