In recent years, the Jurisprudence and Social Policy Ph.D. program has also been able to offer some financial support for students who are pursuing a concurrent J.D. and a Ph.D. at Berkeley Law, in order to help offset the cost of Professional Degree Supplemental Tuition (PDST). Priority is given to those who have not previously received any financial support from JSP for their J.D. degree. Please be aware that funding for these awards is not guaranteed, and the total amount available may fluctuate from year to year.
Please also note that under Berkeley Law policy, students are ineligible to hold an Academic Student Employee (ASE) appointment during the first semester of their J.D. program.
