Second chance for tuition fellowship?
After financial aid decisions have been made, the department informs new grad students by email about whether or not they will receive an aid offer. If a student receives an email saying the department is unable to offer financial aid, that is really the case and the situation is not likely to change later. New students who are not offered a nonresident tuition fellowship before arrival at UC Davis are not likely to receive one later during the first year, either. (Usually, if further funding for nonresident tuition fellowships becomes available later in the year, it would be offered instead to grad students who entered the program previous years.)
