The department offers up to five years of financial support (four years for students entering with the M.A. degree) in the form of fellowships and teaching assistantships that include full tuition remission and a stipend. The awards include full tuition and an annual stipend of $26,000. Most students will be on fellowship during their first year of study and will hold teaching assistantships thereafter.

Additional financial support is available on a competitive basis for research and travel to conferences. A complete list of funding and exchange opportunities offered by the university can be found here.

Students interested in applying for one of these opportunities should speak to the Chair and the Graduate Director early in the year; departmental deadlines usually fall in March.
