Financial Aid

Doctoral students are typically provided a fellowship award which includes an annual stipend, a full tuition scholarship and single coverage health insurance while they are enrolled and making satisfactory progress toward the Ph.D. degree.

Students are strongly encouraged to apply for support from extramural agencies. Students who receive competitively funded extramural fellowships are eligible to receive an additional $2,000 per year in stipend support for the duration of the award.

The stipend is $26,650 in academic year 2014-15 (July 1 - June 30).  Stipend amounts are reviewed annually and generally increased from $500 to $1,000.

Doctoral students who meet the criteria of other sources of assistance may apply for additional aid through the Financial Aid Office
