Graduate Financial Support

Financial Support during regular academic semesters (Fall and Spring)

We support all qualified PhD-bound students through Graduate Teaching or Graduate Research Assistantships.

The level of assistantships for current incoming (Fall 2014) PhD-bound students is $18,000 per academic year (9 months) plus fringe benefits, including access to a health insurance package.

All doctoral level students in good academic standing are eligible for tuition support, covering 85% of the tuition (tuition is approximately $4.000 per academic semester (9 credit hours enrollment)).

Exceptional candidates will be nominated for an additional supplemental graduate scholarships of $2,000 from the College of Science upon entering the program. Early completion of a full application before (nominations are due Feb 15) is required to be considered.

After their comprehensive examination, students are usually supported as research assistants or research fellows, while some continue as teaching assistants. All students are expected to devote their time outside of class to their dissertation or thesis research project.

During the internship, stipends are paid by a host institution (company or other agency).

Financial Support during summer months

The Department provides the opportunity for summer support for all PhD-bound students in good academic standing. Monthly stipends are comparable to those during the academic year appointments [3 months; approximately $5.100; no tuition required as Research Assistant]
