Financial Assistance

The Department makes a concerted effort to secure funding for its Ph.D. graduate students in the form of graduate assistantships and stipends. Such funding, when available, is contingent on good standing and timely progress in the program.

While we have been successful in supporting most of our students financially in recent years, no guarantees can be made. Applicants need to be prepared to underwrite some of their educational and living costs. When funding is available, it generally covers the academic year from September to May.
