Stipend Ph.D. Students

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.

Full-time PhD students receive a tuition scholarship, a competitive stipend and single health insurance coverage. Part-time PhD students and Master's students are typically self-funded.

For the 2013-14 Academic Year:

  • Stipend = $26,650
  • Tuition Scholarship = $44,608
  • Mandatory Health Fee + Single Aetna Health Insurance Plan = $2,616

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
