Financial Support

Our financial support policy makes it possible for graduate students to focus on their own research interests and pursue as independent a course of research as seems suitable.  All students (including international students) are guaranteed support for five years, the expected length of time necessary to finish the Ph.D.  The support covers full tuition and a stipend of at least $40,500 per year (including summer research and teaching).  

Regardless of the source of support, all students must meet the same requirements.  All students are expected to play an active role in the undergraduate teaching functions of the Department.
