All students admitted to the PhD program receive an offer of funding in the form of a fellowship, teaching assistantship, traineeship, or research assistantship. The funding package includes tuition, health insurance and an annual stipend.
Funding is contingent upon faculty determination of satisfactory student progress through the academic program. Four years of financial support is the norm for those entering with a relevant Masters degree and five years for those entering without such a background.
All admitted students receive funding. There is no separate application for financial support; student loans also are available through the Financial Aid Office.
