Fourteen chemistry & biochemistry graduate student researchers receive the 2018-2019 UCLA Graduate Division Dissertation Year Fellowship (DYF).

It includes a $20,000 stipend plus standard tuition and fees (excluding nonresident tuition). Each year, approximately 200 Dissertation Year Fellowships (DYF) are awarded to UCLA graduate students who are nominated for the fellowship by their department.
