All newly admitted Ph.D. students in Linguistics are considered for a variety of Graduate Teaching and Research Assistantships, including the Dean’s Doctoral Assistantship. The DDA will provide a generous stipend for 9-months of study, paying $15,300 per year until you successfully complete your comprehensive exams – typically during your third year. From the semester following the successful completion of your comprehensive exams, your salary will increase to $16,650 per year. The Dean’s Doctoral Assistantship also provides you with 85% tuition coverage of full-time study each academic year for up to 5 years. Read the full assistantship selection criteria (pdf) (Note this award will cover fall and spring semesters of full-time enrollment.)
Applicants should submit their materials by February 15, 2021 for fullest consideration for admission and for this funding program. Interested students should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Assistantships are generally awarded to Doctoral students only. GTAs teach primarily undergraduate linguistics classes. GRAs are assigned to assist a particular faculty member for a set number of hours per week.
The following guidelines are used by the department to determine awards for both new and continuing students.
