All admitted students are automatically considered for funding and fellowships. In recent years, almost all of our students received some form of funding, ranging from a 20-hour teaching assistantship to university-wide fellowships that require no teaching for several years. We will communicate a student’s funding offer in the official admissions offer letter.
In 2015, the department established a formal summer funding program that provides most students funding between their first and fifth years in the program. This funding is provided through research fellowships, research assistantships, and teaching assistantships.
