I am graduating; this is my last year as a UC student. Can I still apply?

If you are graduating in May of the year you apply for the fellowship, you can still apply. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept students graduating the December prior to applying for the fellowship. If you wish to apply as a graduating student, please confirm in your application that you will be able to complete all of the fellowship requirements, including participation in the post-fieldwork gathering in September and presentation at the formal conference in early November on the UC Berkeley campus.
