The DToD Fellows Program is open to all UC Berkeley graduate students (Master and PhD) in good standing in any field, including, but not limited to engineering, physical sciences, natural sciences, social sciences, business, education, I-School, or public health. PhD students have the option to do a Designated Emphasis in Development Engineering. All interested students are encouraged to apply early in their degree to most benefit from being a part of the InFEWS Fellows community. All DToD Fellows will be eligible for special events, workshops, professional development, internship travel funds, and other DToD program elements.

PhD students who are also interested in the Development Engineering (DevEng) Designated Emphasis (DE), please see Development Engineering for more detail on how to apply. DToD is part of the larger Development Engineering program, but it is not a requirement that DToD Fellows also enroll in the DevEng DE.

Select Fellows who apply by the deadline are eligible to get a year of funding, including tuition, fees, and $34,000 stipend. Strong priority is given in allocating funds to students who enroll in the DE, as this demonstrates the strongest commitment to devoting the student’s graduate work to InFEWS areas.

Students admitted after the deadline will be given priority to apply for fellowship funding the following year.
