Caltech C Graduate Fellowship

    In the words of Caltech’s President, Thomas F. Rosenbaum, “There is a tight connection between our ability to recruit faculty and the quality of our graduate students. There’s a virtuous circle— attracting the best graduate students attracts the best faculty, and on and on.”

    Caltech C alumni have come together to establish an endowed graduate fellowship with a primary preference for under-funded disciplines, and a secondary preference for a first-year student of Chinese heritage.
    As of March 1, 2018, more than 80 Caltech C alumni and friends have donated or pledged more than $645,000. We are well on track to reach our stretch goal of $750,000. Combined with the Moore Match, that would bring the total endowment to $1,125,000, with an estimated distribution of $56,000.
    Please read more about the origins of this fellowship on the Caltech Break Through website.
