EE: Financial aid is provided for virtually all Ph.D. students, either in the form of a Teaching Assistantship (TA), a Research Assistantship (RA), or a Fellowship. In EE around 20 students are chosen from ~500 applications.

On average, more than 98% of graduate students offered admission at Caltech are offered a package of merit-based financial support that pays all tuition charges and provides them with a stipend. The only major exception is the case of students in terminal master's programs, who in many cases are self-supported.

Caltech's 124-acre campus is located in Pasadena, California, approximately 11 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles
