Graduate students considering transportation studies at UCLA in one of the following programs will be considered full and partial scholarships:
Incoming Masters of Urban and Regional Planning students who wish to be considered for funding from UCLA ITS must mark that they “intend to complete a research project related to the field of transportation and agree to share my application data with the Institute of Transportation Studies” and answer a supplemental prompt during their application.
Masters of Public Policy students should indicate Transportation as a probable area of concentration and express their transportation-related interests in their statement of purpose and other narratives.
UCLA ITS grants full and partial scholarships for top students who elect to pursue their master’s capstone projects with public sector clients or for projects that have a public benefit. UCLA ITS makes multi-year awards available to incoming Ph.D. students and offers a Dissertation Year Fellowship for UCLA students conducting transportation research for their dissertation.
Current students can access these programs on our Student Portal. Students must be logged into g.ucla.edu to view the portal and may need to use an incognito window to access this website.
