JDP Incentive Awards

Disbursements for the JDP Incentive Awards are in stipend form, generated from the Graduate Division. 

Please note: The support time limit for doctoral students at UC San Diego is 6 years.  Therefore, students will not be eligible for JDP Incentive Awards starting their 7th year in the program.
